Raising funds for Richard Tirado's Subcutaneous Mastectomy ("Top Surgery") which will greatly increasing his quality of life.

We are trying to raise money so Richard Tirado, a transgendered male, can continue his transition with a Subcutaneous Mastectomy, more commonly know as "Top Surgery".

Even though this surgery is critical in the lives of many FTM transgenders, many health insurances, including his, will not cover it. This leaves the patient and his family to pay huge fees out of pocket.

A Subcutaneous Mastectomy is the removal of breast tissue while transplanting the nipple-areola complex. The surgery would also help with Ricky's other health issues, including his scoliosis. It would also remove the need for him to wear a compression shirt, *greatly* increasing his quality of life.

While we are looking into other options, including grants, to fund the operation, we're turning to the kindness of family, friends, and the community at large to help us.
