Support Uncle's Top Surgery Fundraiser

Donation protected


Hello!
And thank you so much for visiting my GoFundMe for Top Surgery. 

My name is hidden for confidentiality and safety reasons and thus, I will be using the alias: "Uncle", for this fundraiser. 

About me and this fundraiser: 
•  I am an NYC based Korean American person of transgender experience, and I am in my mid 30's.
•  I had originally scheduled this procedure to take place with a well-recommended surgeon in Florida back in 2019. The costs of this procedure and the availability of this surgeon pushed the date to December of 2020.
•  Once COVID-19 hit, I was no longer able to maintain this plan. I found another surgeon based in NYC however their availability was pushed to 2021.
•  Then, I was also relocated to another state to provide care for a family member in June.
•  After months of not knowing if or when this surgery could take place, I have finally found a surgeon in the local area who can schedule me by December of this year!
•  The caveat is that it will not be covered by insurance and it does have some more costs that I need support with, including labs to screen for cancer. 

What the funds will go towards:

• Surgeon fee - $8,792
• Operating Room/Facility - $1,985
• Anasthesia - $1,071
• Labs - $500
• Prescription/Meds - $200
• Pre/Post-Op Visits - $200
• EKG's, diagnostics - $500-1000

Why is this fundraiser privately shared:
For reasons of safety and respect to my family of origin who has high visibility and involvement with a large religious organization, I have chosen to keep my fundraiser under a different name. Despite their non-acceptance, I do live my life openly, and proudly transgender. The notion of surgery, however, will not be met with kindness or non-aggression. I respectfully ask that the privacy and precaution of this fundraiser be maintained -- please feel free to share this campaign but please only use my real name in private channels and direct messages only.
