QUEST FOR THE CHEST

£5,385 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 274 people in 87 months
I am raising money for my chest surgery (double mastectomy) that my local NHS have denied.

This is the next step in my transition from female to male. Without this surgery I can't move forward.

Any amount (no matter how small) will be appreciated so much.

I also plan on doing some fund raising events in various venues in the North West and will post details in the near future.

Thanks guys! :)

Hope you all realise how you've changed my world by donating, no matter how big or small! Once I've added up all costs (the surgery is £6000 but I have some money through events that should cover the difference and possibly travel too) if I have any spare at all then I am going to donate that to Fox's chest surgery fund. Hope this is okay with everyone, I'm sure you'll all agree that's the best way to use any extra cash :)
If you would like to donate to Fox directly, here is the link to his site - http://www.gofundme.com/acrlg
(he needs the surgery too but the programme didn't focus on that)
Anyways hope everyone is doing well, and I can't wait for Jan 16th and I'll show you all what you've done for me :) x

Hey everyone, just wanted to say thank you so much. I appreciate every penny you have given. I have my surgery pencilled in for Jan 16th 2012. If I am near enough at the target (through my own savings too) I shall be keeping that date. Can't wait to show everybody photos/videos of my new chest when it's done. My whole world will have changed! Thanks again, sending my love to everyone :)

I know there is a lot of debate about me raising the money myself for surgery. Just wanted to say Ive just got off the phone with Ginny from Dr Yellanda surgery, she frequently fights PCTs for the funding. Ive told her the whole situation and she agrees raising the money myself is the right thing to do. She has spoken to my PCT and they will not budge, they have stated they are actually the poorest PCT in the country. Ginny said we could argue with them till blue in the face and it is not going to change anything, they simply dont have the money. Anyone who has seen any comments on forums etc that are attacking my desicion to fund raise the money, please can you copy and paste this message x

I really can't understand what would possess people to write hateful comments, it is irrelevant if Lewis could of got funding if he fought for it or not, Lewis fundraising for his treatment means that someone else will be able to get treatment on the NHS because he isn't, so I am more than happy to donate, Good luck with the surgery Lewis x

I totally agree with Jade (i have to, she's upstairs and i'm trying to get her to make coffee) This is about YOU and only you Lewis. "The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized--never knowing." --Jim Rohn. I have no idea who Jim Rohn is but seems like a smart fella, like you..now get that banking sorted! x

Lewis pls, pls set up the internet banking! :) Pls ignore tamsin and sophie, they got emotionally invested in a scenario where MTS blows cover for Trans living in stealth, and msg'd Sarah before flouncing off of the forums.

Hi Lewis, This is Chris from New York. I've been watching your show (not legitimately of course since C4 won't allow anyone from the US to watch it at their website) and think you are totally awesome. Anyway, I tried to donate a few mins ago and it still says you can't accept funds. It's 11:05 now, so 4:05pm in UK, so figured your banking issue would have been sorted by now. I'll try again later but just wanted you to know. Love Chris x
