What would you do if you were having a major surgery, and you had to recover on your own, in a cold motel, by yourself, unable to go anywhere. Your body is in pain, you dont feel like eating, and you cant remember when you had your last medication. Now, imagine being hundreds of miles from home, scared and with no family or friends... Just you, all by yourself. Welcome to the life of a transgender surgery patient. Now, imagine if you were picked up by a complete stranger at the airport, greeted with a hug and a warm smile, and treated like family as you are introduced to the wife, daughter and family dog. Imagine having that family take you on surgery day, and be the last person you see when you are put to sleep, as well as the first people you see when you wake up. Imagine being carefully driven back to their home, and being placed into a warm soft bed with clean sheets. Imagine having that family check on you every 15 minutes all through the night, holding you while you throw up, making sure you are ok, emtying your catheder, reminding you to take your medication, bringing you food, snacks and a drink. Imagine just how good an experience that would be... Since November 2011, Ronda, Ashley and I have been blessed to be part of the transition of so many people when we signed a one year lease to create a healing house. We have come to adore their friendship, admire their courage, and love their individual stories as they are truly inspiring. Unfortunately, there are those people who are less than inspired, and the homeowners have decided not to renew our lease for another year. Therefore we are forced to find a new location for this experience, known in the transgender underground as "The Transgender Healing House". Ronda, Ashley and I love what we do, but found ourselves discouraged as our current leasing agent is having trouble finding a lease that will allow us to have guests, without an additional deposit. Homeowners are concerned that with the extra people coming in and out, that walls will be bruised, door frames will be nicked, and carpets will be stained. This means that we need to secure an additional $3,000 to cover the increased deposit and a little more to help with moving expenses. We are afraid that without some help, we may not be able to continue. We are reaching out to you in hopes that you can help us pay it forward. We have created a paypal account to take any donations. 100 people donating $40 will get us there in no time. For some, we know that is alot, just give what you can, every little bit helps. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts... Shannon, Ronda & Ashely
