vinny's Top Surgery

Hello,
My name is Vinny and my wife influenced me a lot into opening up this fund page because in my heart I know that in this world there is a lot of people going through a very difficult time with health issues and conditions that they can not control. In my case is the same, only I do not have a medical condition that prohibits me from doing anything any other human cant do. My condition is more personal yet still impacts my day to day life and if you get to the end of this and help in any form or way thank you in advance.

Ever since I can remember, I have never liked to wear girl's clothes and arguing with my mom about it all the time. I used to get in trouble all the time for dressing tomboy-ish and wanting to only hang around boys instead of girls. 
When I was 12 I built up the courage and say to my mom and dad "I'm not a girl, I'm a boy...and I don't like boys, I like girls..." It was a shock to them both, and I lost total contact with my dad but I was sure of who I was.
 
When I was 18yrs, I officially changed my name from Vanesa to Vinny, and I started to really embrace how I wanted the world to see me. I encouraged all of my friends and family to refer to me as a male. From this point on things looked good, but there was one thing that kept me from feeling completely comfortable with myself. I still have boobs, and I tried to hide them as much as I could and I just couldn't wait for the day until I could afford to get surgery done to remove them. Then one day my daughter asked the big question. She said to me "are you a boy or a girl?" and I said "well...I'm a boy, I was just born into the wrong body" to which she replied saying "so are your boobs ever going to go away?" and I said "soon the time will come and they will go away"

Now it's time, I have a 2year old boy to whom I want to be the best example of dad I possibly can. I am ready to be able to go to the beach shirtless, feel 100% comfortable with my own body and not have the issue of other people calling me "ma'am". I am 28yrs old now and I have responsibilities as a head of household and cannot afford this surgery on my own. My family has started organizing fundraisers to help cover the cost of surgery and recovery time. I am working as much as I am allowed trying to save as much money as I can to make this happen.
I am scheduled for June 7th and I would have to be out of work for about a month.
With the help of my wife, friends and family and anybody who wishes to help me see this dream come true I know everything will workout. 
Anything helps and Thank you for taking your time in reading this.
