Update 6/2/14:THANK YOU FRIENDS FOR HELPING ME REACH AND SURPASS MY GOAL! I DON'T HAVE THE WORDS TO EXPRESS THE DEEP MEANING AND LIFE-CHANGING IMPACT OF YOUR SUPPORT.
I have re-opened KickStartHer becuase several people have asked if they can still make donations. It will now run until I leave for Thailand (Hoepfully in November). There are many more costs than the ones I outlined below, including medication and electorlysis, so any and all donations are still incredibly helpful.
My name is Shakina
, I have been out as transgender since 2001, but only decided to undergo a complete medical transition (gender confirmation surgery) toward the end of 2012. There is really no way I can complete this process without the help of friends, so I decided to launch this campaign to raise the the money I need to finish my transition. I want to go to The Suporn clinic in Thailand
for my surgery because Dr. Suporn has pioneered a completely different procedure for Male-to-Female sexual reassignment.
Here is a breakdown of the costs: Travel to/from Thailand, (NYC-Bangcok, $2,000), At the Supbon clinic in Chonburi, Thailand: Sexual Reassignment Surgery ($18,000, surgery fees include 7-night hospital stay), Hotel in Thailand, $50/night for 3 additional weeks recovery time, $1050), Food/Travel within Thailand ($600). TOTAL: $21,650
Thanks again for taking the time to check out my page. Any and all support is appreciated! Shakina
