Carter's Top Surgery

Hello everyone! My name is Carter Lee and I am looking to raise funds for top surgery. To keep it short, "top surgery" is a gender-affirming procedure for trans people. Its technical term is a "mastectomy" and my chest will be made more masculine looking. 

I struggle with gender dysphoria, which means I feel a strong disconnect between my gender identity and the body I was given. I bind every day because seeing myself with a flat chest gives me confidence and simply put, just feels right. It's hard to explain how uncomfortable and heartbreaking it is to look at myself when I have to take breaks from binding every night. I need top surgery so I can stop risking damage to my chest and so I can be happy in my own skin. Becoming the most authentic version of myself is something I'm working very hard towards, and top surgery is a very important milestone to my progress. 
Although it is a major surgery and will take time to recover from, the results of this surgery are something I very much look forward to. 

Unfortunately, my insurance doesn't cover all the costs, and this isn't something I am able to pay for out of pocket. Swallowing a great amount of pride, I am asking the community around me to help me get there. If all goes to plan, I'd plan to have this surgery in the spring. Any amount helps! Thank you for your support!
