what’s up! my name is rosi.
i am a qwoc/questioning genderqueer of color with plans for top surgery in a few months. i’m planning on pivoting on this giant change in my life, to begin to make big moves to improve my life and make myself happy. my chest is the biggest source of my corporal dysphoria.
yesterday, i had a consultation with my doctor. my subcutaneous mastectomy will be scheduled for june and is going to cost me $6,500. i’m going to start myself at $1000 of my own money but would be so grateful for outside help. in addition to the surgery cost, i will be raising funds for post-op checkups and for the medication they anticipate prescribing me with (i don’t and never have had health insurance so this will be expensive for me.) in addition, i will be raising funds to secure my living situation for my healing period, since i will lose my job when i undergo this operation and will be starting college just a short few months after.
i’m avoiding gofundme because of their refusal to remove their fundraiser for darren wilson, and am choosing instead to collect funds through paypal
i will be using the linked tumblr page to keep track of donations.
to show my gratitude, i will make a little placard with my hand lettering (that you can preview here) of every donator’s name/designated name, unless otherwise requested. if you are the donator, you can use it however you want! they will be uploaded to the donation tracking page!
