Transgender Veteran

My name is Erin Leach, and I am a transgender veteran. I am scheduled for gender conformation surgery on October 10th. The surgery is paid for, but some other things are not. I have to travel to Portland Oregon to OHSU for the surgery, that means airfare for the surgery and two follow up appointments. That airfare will come up to $900. I need to stay in Portland from October 6th to the 24th. In an AirBNB, that comes out at $600. I have to have an electrolysis check on September 13th, that trip alone is $400. $1900 to cross the finish line for my transition. I am a veteran living on $790 a month, and half of that pays student loans. Please help me, I haven't much time left.
