My 13 year old, Ronin was born with male genitals, but as the years have past, and she has her own ideas about who she is, and how she views the world around her, she is 150% positive that she is actually a female.  As her mother, I am positive as well.  She has been living as a girl for the past 9 months or so, but as puberty seems to be really starting, we are both very worried about the affects testosterone will have on her body and emotions.  We have been mad aware of "puberty blockers" but, as insurance won't cover this, and my funds are limited, we are looking for help to get us through this phase of Ronin's transition.

Just FYI: Most insurance plans will not pay for puberty inhibitors and they can be cost prohibitive.  The implant is effective for approximately one year; however, may last months longer and effectiveness can be checked by blood test. The cost varies from $4,500-$15,000 and must be inserted by a surgeon.  Monthly injections are approximately $1,200 per month.  This will not include the cost of other necessary treatment, such as: blood work, x-rays, office visits with the physician, etc.

Ronin is a very talented singer, and the oncome of male puberty is a threat to her beautiful voice, which she plans on showing off more publicly this summer at open mic events around our town.

Any little bit of help is appreciated, even if it's $5 or maybe a monthly $10.  Thank you so much for your care and kindness!
