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.

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

Top Surgery Fund!

As a Christian I just wanna say that I think getting your operation is a good thing. I can't imagine what it's like to live with dysphoria, and the obvious medical problems of having to wear those bandages must be a pain in every sense. I'd donate but I don't have a job or money yet, I'm still in school.

And even though you said in the comments here you don't believe in God, I'll still pray for you Jay.

Aw thanks dude! I'm glad more folks are starting to understand it isn't some kind of fetish or something, and more an issue that occurs before birth. It's a tough thing to go through and the support has helped so much.

It's not that I don't believe in any sort of god(s), but rather I don't believe in a hateful, condemning god :) I don't adhere to a particular religion at this point in time but I do think there is something out there! In some ways I do believe I turned out this way for a reason, and that it's taught me important things. My path has brought the most amazing people into my life too!

I understand how hard it is to raise funds like these, so I'll spread the word on my deviantArt page and my Google Plus page if you'll like. I don't have PayPal, but I really want to support you in anyway possible! Keep going, and don't lose faith!

As a fur who has T friends, with gender dysphoria and/or are intersexed, I truly wish you the best! I am going to see what I can do, or find a way, to help you out. I've just started working on costuming again after a long hiatus, but I'm going to think of a way to help! -hugs- <3
