Liv's Top Surgery Fund

Liv's Top Surgery Fund

From Sophie Luckenbaugh

My amazing, non-binary partner, Liv, is getting top surgery soon to help with some of the dysphoria they experience. For their birthday, which is coming up too, I am raising funds to help them with this massive expense.

In the first photo above, you can see the moment one dysphoric weight was lifted off their shoulders: their hair. In March of this year, Liv, after months of talking about it, decided to go to the barber and make the big chop. I had the absolute joy of watching them look in the mirror and take in their image, now just a little bit closer to what they aspire after. Seeing the person you love light up like that is surreal. As I look toward caring for Liv after their surgery, I simply cannot wait to see that joy be magnified when they get to see their new body. I am so excited to see the new phase of gender euphoria this surgery will bring. Every donation to this campaign will be supporting this exact feeling and movement toward a life time of self love. 

Liv is the most hard working person I have ever met. They have been working since fourteen and still managed to succeed academically in high school, not to mention earning a second degree blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do and playing Varsity volleyball. Moving into college, they have kept on working, constantly putting more and more into their savings to go toward their future. Since deciding to get top surgery, though, all of that money has been redirected toward paying for it, while other expenses, such as moving out of an unsupportive household or saving for student debt, have been pushed aside. I have seen, first hand, how hard this wonderful human pushes themselves to earn every dollar they are spending on this surgery, and how much the every piling expenses are weighing on them. In my eyes, no one else is more deserving of even the littlest bit of help. Every dollar would mean the world.
