Top Surgery Fund for Kanin

Hello my name is Kanin Gillespie. I am a transgender man and I have severe dysphoria with my chest. I started hormone therapy about 9 months ago. I have always had self image issues with my chest.  I usually wear a chest binder but I have long days where I am unable to take it off so I end up wearing it for more than the recommended time. I also have back issues such as scoliosis and arthritis. I end up with chest and back pain a lot because of binding but at the same time I really cant handle not wearing it because of my self consciousness. 
This fund is to help me save up for top surgery, a procedure that will remove the fat from my chest and shape my chest to be more masculine. I am in contact with a surgeon in Boston but I am having trouble raising the money because I am a college student. Even just a dollar will help me immensely. I know this is a surgery that will help my every day life and a surgery I desperately need. I'm hoping to be able to afford the surgery by next year. 
Thank you so much to anyone who donates.
