Hiii, guys. This is more than a little embarrassing to be asking, but I’m not sure what else to do at this point, and I’m desperate.
I’ll keep it brief: I’m a trans man. Almost 21, unemployed, and living with chronic depression, anxiety, severe OCD and ADHD, all of which make it nearly impossible to work or complete tasks or even take care of myself.
And I need chest surgery.
That sounds pretty dramatic, but there’s no other way to put it. I need this procedure. It’s not an elective. Having my chest look the way it does is utter misery for me. It affects all aspects of my daily life, and is a huge detriment to my mental health, self-esteem, and overall quality of life.
MSP won’t cover it. We’re still working on it, but even if they do, there’s only one approved surgeon in the COUNTRY who will perform the procedure, and the estimated waiting time is over three years. I can’t wait that long. I just can’t. So it’s $8,000 out of pocket for a clinic in Mississauga, and that’s a damn lofty goal for a kid with no income.
Please, it would mean the world to me if you could donate any amount at all, or even just signal boost my campaign. Thank you.
