Laine's Chest Reduction!

Laine's Chest Reduction!

From Laine Cohen

This summer I'm getting an aggressive breast reduction to help reduce my 20 years of chronic pain. This surgery will also help my physical body fit with my soul.

Update #8

15 days ago

Surgery is only a month away! I've been waiting so long and it's finally here! But there's still so many things left to do. My transportation is arranged, hotel is in progress, caregiver is in progress, and I still have medical stuff to do. Funds are still needed so if you can help out in any way, I would absolutely appreciate it!

More Info

I will have to go to San Francisco for this surgery which is 6 hours away. Levi will be at a board and train for a week. Partnership will pay for the mileage.  I have to go down the day before the surgery for bloodwork and meet the doctor. I have to stay in the Bay Area for a week after surgery in case of complications. The doctor recommended that I stay in an Air BnB for the week.

Update #7

There are just a few months until my surgery! I'm looking for a place to stay for a week after surgery within an hours drive of San Francisco. I'll have a caregiver with me. We just need a bedroom with access to kitchen and bathroom. Or a low cost AirBnB! Please let me know if you know of anything!

Update #6

I have a surgery date! But it's not till next year which just gives me more time to fundraise. The doctor's office is trying to get me in sooner but right now it's in February.

Update #5

Queer Humboldt has approved me for a micro grant to help with my post surgery needs! The amount is small but still absolutely helpful! I'm so grateful! However, I'm still waiting for my insurance to get everything approved so no surgery date yet.

Update #4

Yesterday I had an appointment with a caseworker at Open Door and he helped me apply for a grant through Queer Humboldt that would pay for some of my housing expenses post-surgery.
I'm so grateful to all those who have shared and contributed to my fundraiser, it means the absolute world to me!

Update #3

In ten days I have an appointment with a caseworker to try to get scholarships for housing during recovery week after surgery. This could be absolutely amazing and REALLY lower the amount I need to raise.
Again, I'm super grateful to those who have donated so far. Have a great weekend!

Update #1

Today I had a consultation with Dr. Facque at the Gender Confirmation Center in San Francisco. He gave me a LOT to think about; I have some big choices to make before surgery can be scheduled.
Dr. Facque also said I'll have to stay within an hour's drive for a week post-surgery which changes things as well. I live 6 hours away so I won't be able to go home.
