Top Surgery Fund by Robo-Shark Top Surgery Fund by Robo-Shark
Note: I have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, and was born with both male and female characteristics and reproductive organ defects. This is not a choice, a trendy statement, or purely cosmetic; it is a part of treatment for a legitimate medical condition. Please research trans medicalism and intersexed individuals before drawing conclusions. If your beliefs include denying medical treatment for birth defects or illnesses, then that is your opinion, but it will not change my decision to seek treatment. Thank you very much to those who have shown support and understanding for a serious medical condition.

Hello friends!

I'm a 27 year old trans man who has been presenting as male for the past three years. I am planning for surgery and had been hoping to set up a date a few years in the future after saving commission money, but my HRT has been sucking all my funds, and my endocrinologist is very concerned with my health and highly recommends that I push hard to get surgery sooner than later, as binding my chest for as long and as often as I have had to due to working outside the home so much could be doing permanent damage to my ribs and lungs.

Unfortunately I can't afford to do this on my own. I'm working a combined 80-100 hours a week between my studio job and commissions, but with school loans and the cost of my injections, there is not much left at the end of the month. I'd hugely appreciate any help in getting to my goal so I can get my chest repaired and be able to live a slightly more normal life!

The surgery plus hospital stay generally costs approx. $10,000, and also requires me to stay in the hospital area for about a week. I am trying to provide $3,000+ out of my own pocket but some help would be really great. Once the total is reached, I'll work on scheduling the surgery and time off for hospital recovery!

Thank you so much for your consideration and for spreading the word. You are all amazing friends and your support has always meant so much to me! More rewards may be added over time!

-Jay

I'm late to respond but I just have to say this.
I somewhat know what you're going through and I wish I could help somehow, I apologize that I can't. All I can do is tell you that I support you even if I don't know you.

It's no problem. I think the world needs more people that understand these things and are willing to at least support them. I'm glad I have people who support me and that I can pass it on to you.

Yikes!  Boy am I behind in the news department.  Sorry for taking so long!  Good luck with the surgery!  I'm sure once the money part of it is handled the rest will go smoothly!  I can't offer much because I'm out of work for the summer and trying to raise money to even out my bills until Fall, but I have a little bit in my Paypal I can give to the cause.  :)  Could I send it to your Paypal account?

Ahh thanks Dana! I'm sure I'll make it there someday, gonna try to do a consultation with a surgeon soon, and I'm doing what I can to keep it local to cut costs overall. Pffft I'm the one who has a check to write to YOU when we get to the con, which by the way I've got the stock coming along well! :D Looking forward to it!

But thank you so much |D

That sounds great!  No need to worry until the con is here.  :D  Hopefully we'll make bank there, and you'll make profit towards your surgery!  I look forward to working the table with you, too!  It's going to be a blast!

Thanks, I really hope so! I'm pushing to make as much as I can, hope they sell either at the con or online shortly afterwards. Going to put as much as possible to the surgery. And looking forward to the con experience with you too!

Wow I did NOT expect there to be a lot of people to start yelling hate towards your goal o3o

Well anyway, I'm glad you're not letting them bother you and it's very brave of you to go ahead with this <:3

I'm afraid I don't have any money to offer but I wish you the best of luck and hope you can reach your goal :hug:

Aw thank you, I'm used to people being this way and I wasn't surprised to have a few who are showing their ugliness, hahah. Thanks so much, it has been a tough journey thus far but I'm fortunate to have a lot of really great friends to have gotten me this far! I appreciate the support!
