Hey everyone. My name is Owen Holtz, and I am a transgender male.
Although it wasn't a surprise to everyone, and I was able to come out when I felt appropriate, I have felt this way since I was a kid. Unfortunately, puberty struck, and I no longer had the flat chest, or was able to live as the person I thought I was. However, I am much happier now, but I obviously have some assets that are not part of me, and I want to be able to change that, but I need your help!
I currently live with my mom, rent free, but I am still required to pay my own way, and my meager wages only let me save up a little bit of money at a time. Because I would really like to get top surgery (full breast mastectomy) in 6 months, I am asking for your help.
I have chosen Dr. Karen Vaniver in Seattle, and am pleased with her empathy for transpeople, her understanding as a doctor, and her caring and advice in the importance of my health to prepare for surgery. Also, because she is local, I will not have to save up funds for travel and many other expenses.
I am only asking for $7,650, and want to earn the rest on my own. All the money will be kept in a savings account that I’ve created just for this surgery fund.
You have my sincerest gratitude when you donate to me, and even sharing this fundraiser with other people will help me out a lot!
