medical procedure

My fundraiser is for breast augmentation, as most of you know I am transgender,  I realized when I was 7 years old something was not right, I didn't like  boys or there toys I liked girl toys, dressing up, I used to dress in my mom's clothing and make up and I was happy and it felt right, until my family  thought something was wrong with me and I was made to quit. In school all my friends were girls and I wanted to do the girl sports,  As a young adult once I was moved out I started to research my issue and came to realize it was a medical condition and i was not the only one, so I started cross dressing and found jobs in female impersonation  and wow I was so happy because I could be a woman and be me, unfortunately  this was in the 90's it was not acceptable  to be transgender, some people are accepting  of this some are not, I have lost many friends and family for being me, this is not a phase, it's not something that I choose or want to do it's something I have to do. I came to realize  that for my own safety and to please everyone around me and to stop loosing friends and family I had to be a man, so I did I went into the military, I got man jobs like construction  and mechanic, I married woman and had children and had the sports  cars and pick up trucks, all of the man things I could do to make everyone  else happy, I have cried many night, attempted suicide many times, dealt with being depressed  every day of my life, Eventually I decided  I couldnt live with the challenges any more and that I had 2 choices either end my life or be me, I moved to a new state, found counseling, a strong group of friends and started being  me 10 years ago I came out again as being transgender, 8 years ago I started taking horomones, 6 years ago I went too the court house and changed my gender marker on my legal documents to female and legally changed my name to lacy. To this day I am still living as a female, at home, at work ect but not being able to pass asa woman still makes it hard, I still have times where I think about suicide and deal with depression  every day, if I could look more female I would be able to pass easier and I would be happy with my self when I look in the mirror I want to see a woman, nota man so please  if you can help by donating, transgender is not a choice you are born with it, growing up and living your life knowing that you are living in the wrong body is devastating and causes many emotional and mental issues, I am not going to lie I have dealt with depression, anxiety  and suicide my whole life because of the emotional, physical  and mental aspects of knowing that I do not look female and that I can't  be female, I have been accepted  by some but shunned  by most, I live my life scared and in a box everyday because  I am scarred  to be my self because I don't pass especially  when it is time to go to the restroom due  to not passing as a woman. In the next year or so I will be getting the lower surgery but insurance pays for that, insurance does not pay for breast  augmentation since it is considered  cosmetic. So I am asking that you help a girl out please help me to be able to be me. Please donate to my cause, thank you so much and please share my story, if anyone has questions feal free to contact me, thank you and hugs and kisses.
