A request for help

Hey folks,

As most, if not all, of you are aware, I am a transgender woman hoping to have G.C.S. (Gender Confirmation Surgery) before too long and I can have that surgery once I’ve met certain criteria. I’ve met all criteria except the need to be on H.R.T. (Hormone Replacement Therapy) for one year. As of December 21, 2019, I will have also met that requirement.

The surgeon I want to perform my surgery is Dr. Marci Bowers in the Bay area. In my opinion, and that of many others, she is the best of the best. This means that she is highly sought after by transgender people all over the world. As such she has a waiting list, and as you can imagine, it is a rather lengthy list and getting longer every day. Right now she is scheduling surgeries 3-4 years out. One caveat to this is she has a cancellation list, which means it is possible to have surgery sooner because of cancellations but that list is also long and getting longer.

I was really excited because I recently found out that, even though I’ve not been on H.R.T. for 1 year yet, I can get on her waiting and cancellation lists. I believe managing to get on those lists would help me not be such a basket case because then I could see light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately I’m currently unable to get on those lists, that keep getting longer the longer I wait, because I need to put down $1000.00 which I do not have.

It has been suggested by folks to create a Gofundme and ask for donations. I’d rather not use the Gofundme platform but I am willing to ask for help.

I realize times are tight for us all but if you could spare a little something to help me raise the needed $1000.00 down payment, I would be quite appreciative. I am posting a link to my PayPal account for anyone who is willing and able to donate money to help me towards my goal. Thank you in advance to those who provide some assistance.

If you can’t or are unwilling to help I fully understand. There is no need to post replies of “I wish I could” or some other words explaining why you can’t and I would ask you to refrain from doing so.
