Hello, everybody,

Most of you who know me understand that I have gone through a difficult gender transition, mostly riding "solo" down the road. Through it all, I have begun to actualize myself as the woman I am. It makes me so grateful to say that I am near the end of this incredible transition; however, I am having difficulty reaching the final steps on my own. And now, I turn to you to help see me through.

Fortunately, within the past month, my health insurance provider and I have agreed to schedule my gender confirmation surgery in six months. While they will cover the majority of the costs for the two stages of my surgery (1st the actual vaginoplasty in springtime, then the labiaplasty three months afterward), I am responsible for several copayments and aftercare. I am incredibly thankful for this opportunity, as this lifts a giant burden off of my shoulders by not needing to raise tens of thousands of dollars. Nonetheless, the costs of pre-surgery preparation and post-surgery aftercare are still too much for me to handle by myself. Moreover, I have not been able to finish a few loose ends related to transition, such as finalizing name changes, removing facial hair, and replacing torn and worn clothing.

Because my personal finances are insufficient, I cannot feasibly cover the pre- and post-surgery costs, nor can I wrap up my loose ends elsewhere. The summertime was particularly difficult for me, in which I was struggling to barely survive at times, sometimes going through waves of malnutrition, chronic body aches and pains, and panic attacks. Thankfully, things are picking up slowly for me this fall season, and I can manage my basic necessities much better than before. On the flip side, I need to repair my body and soul from the damage I have caused them, as well as covering the incoming end-of-transition costs.

As such, I am raising $2500, from now until Monday, November 4, for the following: medical expenses relating to surgery, electrolysis treatments on the nether regions, one month of intense aftercare, two final name and gender changes, urgent mental and physical treatments, and a few replacements for torn and worn items including clothes and makeup. Any remaining funds will be donated to a charity that benefits trans* people.

Truth is, I don't ask for help often, and it's difficult for me to do so because I am truly proud of myself for gotten as far as I did by myself. But I'd be a fool to think that I can get through the rest of life this way; it's friends like all of you who have illuminated my life and helped me believe in myself. Thank you all for your love and support; I am truly humbled.
