I will need to fly from Montreal, QC where I am currently in school (for film animation/fibres) back home to Victoria, BC. The three months of my leave from work + school includes needing to stay in Victoria for the 3 month checkup. I can’t go back to Montreal too soon in case anything goes wrong and I need to get medical attention (in which case I would have to fly back to B.C.).
Taking 3 months off is a huge blow to my studies and finances, particularly because I’m incredibly financially unstable to begin with. The $4880 is to cover primarily my flight home and back, (which could hypothetically be a last minute booking depending on when I get my top surgery date, which will ideally be very soon), plus expenses (food, bills, possibly insurance), lack of employment income, and any post-op medical gear (i.e. compression vest, tape, etc.), doctors appointments, as well as the 2.9% of the total + 0.30 cents per donation that go fund me deducts for fees.
If you donate to me and would want something in return, like prints, puppets or art of any kind, just let me know! I’m so grateful to anyone who would decide to help me and would want to share the love. Thank you for supporting queer people and for helping me heal my body!
