I have been on Testosterone for one year now, and I am so pleased with the results. I cannot wait to have surgery and feel so much more comfortable in my skin. My double mastectomy is scheduled for December 10th with Dr. Beverly Fischer, here in Maryland. Because insurance companies do not cover gender affirming surgeries for trans* individuals, I have to pay the whole cost out of pocket. The surgery is $7,350. So far, I have paid almost a third of that. If I could get even a hundred dollars in donations, it would mean the world to me. Being a full-time student makes it difficult to save money, but I have been working diligently, as this surgery is really important to me and my mental health. For once, I am looking for to beach season!
