Medical Fund for GRS in Thailand


Hello Everyone, my name is Kristina Konwerski and as you may have seen in my  video I am trying to raise money for my Gender Reassignment Surgery. I am a transgender woman who has been on hormones for over three years. Since childhood I knew that I was different. I wore dresses and dressed up as my favorite Disney princesses and sailor scouts, I played with Barbie dolls, I was literally the definition of a little girl. I even took my dolls to football practices and back to school nights. Growing up this little girl was left behind and I began to simply embrace who I saw in the mirror, which sadly was a growing boy. Though every birthday I wished I was a girl, that wish never came true until three years ago at the age of 21. 21 years of my life was spent identifying as this individual who I knew I was not. I was playing dress up for those 21 years and now have the opportunity to fully take off that costume. Being transgender is about more than the physical self, it is also about one's soul. And being born in the wrong body harms that soul because one can not fully live as their true selves. They stay trapped and hidden until one day they can finally be set free. And for me to fully feel free, whole, and at peace with my soul I need to get this surgery. The surgery is very extensive and I have uploaded a video of that as well.  Because of this it is also very expensive, ranging from 10000-25000 in the states. Hence why I am seeking surgery elswhere. I am finally coming to a close where surgery is my final step, and the cheapest surgeons I have found are in Thailand. Bangkok and Phuket in particular. These funds will go strictly toward the flight there and the surgery. They are sadly the most expensive parts of it all but I would be paying for my own passport, hotel, and food, etc. any and any other post-procedure costs. Any donations would be a huge help and I would not be able to thank you all enough. I work full time and am looking for a second-part time job now, most likely driving for Lyft. The bills I do have are very high and it has been very difficult to save. I also need to move at some point which is also where my money is going. Life happens and unfortunately some are dealt a much worse hand. I am gratefuly for what I do have. I hope you share this and if nothing else are able to spread the word. I thank each and every one of you for any help you're able to give me. Thank you.
