Money raised here will be used for surgery needs and travel/accommodations needs during surgery.

Help a butterfly soar. I am trying to break out of my cocoon We are trying to raise some money to cover the portion of my Gender Reassignment surgery that insurance will not cover. This is a considerable about of money out of pocket as insurance will only cover 50% of a 27,000 dollar surgery.

I am transgender. This means that I was born a boy but from my earliest memories have considered myself a girl. I have always done so.

It wasn't until I was about 35 that I discovered the term "transgender". I researched and found that this in fact fit me. I went to a therapist and he also found that I had Gender Identity Dysphoria.

Since then I have been in the process of what is called the transition. Transitioning from one gender to the other.

I have had one surgery to eliminate all the testosterone in my body. I am on hormones and things are progressing nicely.

There is a "real life test" that each person wanting the surgery I am wanting, must go through.I am about 5 months from reaching that end. At this point I can get my surgery.

The surgery is called a vaginoplasty. Some surgeons will do the vaginoplasty as well as the labiaplasty at the same time, this is what I am hoping for. Others will do them in two different sugeries. The cost for this can double.

I do not want to go overseas to a doctor that is cheap by our standards only to have the surgery not done correctly and have to spend much more money on corrections.

Please help me make this dream come true for me. I am a ways off from scheduling but we are trying to be pro-active in this so that we are ready.

If you have questions about any part of this, the surgury, what the money will be used for, my reasoning, anything, message me. I am very open about this with all those that want to know.

Thanks
