Help a guy raise some money for Top Surgery.
My name is Chase, and I’m an 18 year old transgender guy from Seattle, WA. I’m trying to raise money for my reconstructive chest surgery.
I came out as trans* when I was 13 and socially transitioned that year. My medical transition started in April of 2012 at the age of 17 when I started Testosterone. Now, having lived as male for 5 years and having been on Testosterone for a year, I want to move my medical transition forward to get top surgery.
I have no health insurance and I work two minimum wage jobs. I can’t save up money on my own for this, and my family can’t afford to help. I don’t like that I have to ask for help for this, but not knowing if or when I’ll be able to afford to get surgery is taking a toll on my emotional health.
The total on the site is an estimate of what I would need to get my surgery done by my preferred surgeon plus air fare and hotel stay once I’m there. I have not gotten in contact with a surgeon yet, since I don’t know if or when I’ll be able to pay for surgery.
If you could help me out by pitching in or signal boosting this, I would really appreciate it. I’ve seen Tumblr do some amazing things.
Thank you so much,
Hey, I know this isn’t Freaks and Geeks related, but Chase is one of my best friends and I want to help him out. Any money you could donate to help him save up for his surgery would be wonderful. Thank you.
