Hi! My name's Mercury, I'm a nineteen-year-old transgender man who goes by he/him pronouns. I've been using chest binders for two years, but top surgery is much healthier and effective! (A chest binder is a constrictive undershirt that flattens one's chest.) I've met with a top surgeon and we don't have a date set yet, but, we are planning for this year. This is extremely important to me, chest binding isn't safe (even when done with a chest binder) and years of it can lead to broken ribs and a permanently damaged immune system and ribcage. Not only that, but, achieving top surgery will greatly improve my mental health, and this won't be cheap, even under my insurance. I'll need all the help I can to make sure this surgery is well-paid for, so, if you can donate and/or signal boost, that would help me immensely.

 

My nineteenth birthday was August 3. I was hoping to have my surgery as a birthday present, but I have failed to raise enough funds for this. It's literally the only gift I wanted and I still didn't get it. I’d like everyone, anyone, no matter how little money you have — to donate at least something for my top surgery fund. It doesn’t have to be much, but I am going to be paying $4500 and I HAD a job that helped raise some funds, but now I'm moving away for college and I need some assistance for the remaining $1000.

So, please — no matter who you are, and how little you have, donate. I’ll give you art in exchange if you want, just — PLEASE — because my top surgery is the only birthday gift I ask for, DONATE.

If you care about me as a person, want to see my health flourish, and consider yourself a trans advocate, please donate for the only birthday present I want this year.

Thank you so much!! I hope you have a very good day!!
