Sophia's Gender Affirmation Surgery Fund

$855 of $8,500 goal

Raised by 12 people in 3 months
Hello. My name is Sophia Rose.  I began my medical transition journey in June of 2016with HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) followed by an Orchiectomy in July of this year.   I’m setting up this fundraiser to assist in helping to pay for Gender Affirmation Surgery (GAS). GAS is one of the surgeries I will need in my quest to complete my transition.  My surgery is scheduled for the end of April, 2019.

This brings us to why we are here; I need your help.Being a single-income family, saving money is extremely difficult.  I am also disabled, struggling with Crohn’s disease and Bipolar disorder.  As you can imagine, my medical bills add up quickly between co-pays, constant lab-work, medications and procedures.While dealing with these invisible illnesses is a daily battle, I remain dedicated in my pursuit of aligning my mind and body, my sole focus of being free to be my authentic self.

I will be counting on this fundraiser to help cover the costs of both the surgery itself ($6,100 for surgical costs), and travel expenses for both myself and my wife since the surgery will have to be performed out of state ($2,400 for flights, hotel, and ground transportation).  We are estimating a grand total of approximately $8,500.
