I’m 20 years old and a transgender male.
I’m trying to raise money for my top surgery (chest reconstruction surgery).
I started testosterone privately in September 2018, through self-funding.
However, I really hoped to get top surgery on the NHS because it’s SO expensive privately. As of now, I’ve been waiting 2.5 years since first even asking for a referral, and haven’t had my first appointment with an NHS GIC yet. Because it’s taking so long, I probably won’t get top surgery on the NHS for at least another 2 or 3 years.
It’s so important to me that I get this surgery as soon as I can. It will be truly life changing and I genuinely don’t want or need anything else as much as this. I’ve been binding my chest for 3 years already, which is restricting and dangerous. I’m asthmatic and broke my ribs at 14 y/o. This often causes me a lot of pain and I’m unable to bind for long. Getting top surgery will help me not only physically but also mentally, as it will help alleviate my dysphoria greatly.
I have already saved £3k towards this surgery, but need to find another £3.5k for the cost of it + hospital stay & travel etc. I can promise that no money donated will be used for anything but this surgery & the additional costs. I’m a full-time student, and looking for jobs but it’s going to be really difficult save this much money as well as having the funds to live away from home and study.
I really hate having to ask for help, especially when it comes to asking people for money. I never wanted to set this up but I really don’t know how else I’m going to be able to pay for this.
Please donate if you can, even the littlest amount helps. If you can’t donate then perhaps just share this page. I appreciate any help.
