Kevin's Surgery - A new beginning

Hi, my name is Sean and I've started this campaign for my brother Kevin.

Kevin is a 33-year old family man with an absolute heart of gold. He's an honest, responsible, hard-working man.

I'm asking you to help me give my brother the gift of freedom. The money raised will be used to pay for my brother's surgery.

Kevin has a medical condition known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is the over-development of breast tissue in men. This condition is not life-threateneing, but the psychological impact of this condition is beyond words. I know this extremely well because I too suffered from this condition.

I developed gynecomastia in my early teens and lived with it until my early twenties, when I got it surgically removed. During those 10 years I lived the majority of my life in complete despair. I was ashamed of myself and my body. I felt worthless. I isolated myself from friends and family. I avoided intimate relationships. The gynecomastia controlled what clothes I wore, what activities I engaged in, and quite literally every aspect of my life. I was imprisoned by this condition. I felt like a defective piece of garbage and felt completely trapped in a body that I hated.

I was too ashamed to tell anyone of my condition so I lived in isolated silence for those long painful years. I didn't learn it was an actual curable medical condition until just before my surgery when I was at the end of my rope and in desperate need of a life change.

My life after surgery has been absolutely amazing. I am no longer ashamed of my body and gynecomastia has absolutely no control over my life anymore. Surgery has given me an entirely new life and I am now a free man.

I've committed to give this same gift of freedom to my brother but I can't do this alone. I humbly ask you to please help me give this amazing gift to a most deserving and humble man. Any contribution big or small will help to make this a reality.

I thank you so much for your time and I wish you an abundance of joy and success on your life path.
