Top Surgery

Hey my name is Ryan I`m currently an 18 years old trans man and I am trying to raise money for top surgery something that will impact on my life more than you can imagine. I was born biologically female but from as young as I can remember my brain has always been male. In 2015 i decided it was time to come out to my friends and family and in September of last year began medically transitioning to become physically male.  The effect of male hormones on my body has been amazing but the next stage for me is to have my chest surgically reconstructed to look like a biologically male flat chest. The waiting list for the NHS is approximately 2 to 3 years long and this is simply too long. Binding everyday to compress my chest is painful and in hot weather makes it almost unbearable. With the help of some research I have found a surgeon in Poland who would be willing to give me surgery as soon as I have raised the £3200 to cover travel expenses and the surgery itself which if i am lucky could be some time this year. All i want is to be able to live as my authentic self, to go to the beach with my friends and not worry about having to cover up, to go on family holidays and not have to wear a restricting binder in 30 degree weather. I know this is an awful lot of money to raise and i will be so grateful for any money you can donate, i hate asking people for money but this surgery will save my life. Please share this as far and wide as you can to try and get as many people to donate. I will try and do as many fundraisers as possible to raise any extra money and any ideas are all welcome. Thank you so much
