I would love to raise money to pay for my surgery to correct horrific scaring left after my masectomy. Please help thanks.

At the age of 36 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was told that I would need a simple lumpectomy but by the time I went into surgery it had spread and I was whisked into chemotherapy the next day.
It all came as a big shock to me as being bi-polar I had a created a life that had made me happy and was very re-warding and thanks to my friends and family I had very little to upset me.
By the time I had finished chemo I had to have a mastectomy and my friends and family were so supportive I would not have been able to get through it without them.
Thankfully my surgery was a success as they removed my right breast and my lymph nodes. Unfortunately things didn't go too well and I am left with hideous scarring on my breast my abdomen and my left leg.
I do thank god every day I am alive but I can't even look at myself in the mirror.
I tried to go through the National Health System to see the surgeon that can fix it but unfortunately the hospital he works for only accepts cases that had their chemo there. The only other way to go is privately which I can't afford.
I ask humbly if you could all help me to raise the money to have this surgery. It would mean so much to me and would literally save my life as I cannot bear my body to be shown and I can't bare to look at it.
Thanks for your time and understanding.
