More Info

You may not know me, or you may not have known I was trans and looking into surgery at all. Either way, I'm glad you're here and looking to help out.

My name is Connor, I am a trans looking to get a double incision mastectomy to alleviate my chest dysphoria, as well as other things (Which I will mention!).

I have been uncomfortable with my body for as long as I can remember. Whether it be for trans reasons or just general self-consciousness, I've never really liked my chest. Of course, now I'm realizing that a lot of the negative feelings comes from dysphoria. What I see in the mirror doesn't match up. My chest doesn't feel like part of my body and it never really has. 

What would this surgery do to help me?-I would feel comfortable in my own body, giving me the chance to become more confident and  -I would feel free to do a lot of things that I hold back on because of dysphoria, such as going to the gym (a health benefit!), going to the beach and swimming, and just existing in general! -Like I mentioned, I tend to hold off on exercise out of worry of looking strange, moving or bouncing the "wrong" way. I would love to start exercising and going running to help with my physical and mental health. 

You may be saying to yourself, "$8,000 is a lot! Why do you need that much?!"Well, I ask myself the same question.

The surgeon I am looking into at the moment has a fee of $8,000 CAD. This price gets me (As per their website)

  • the initial consultation
  • all pre and post instructions
  • the pre-operative visit
  • the actual surgery
  • general anesthesia
  • all facility fees
  • pathology fees
  • after hours support 24/7
  • all post-operative visits
  • surgical binder and dressing supplies

Now I'm sure you noticed CAD, and I'm asking for USD. In USD it would be around 6 or 7 thousand instead of 8. But I'm not trying to cheat you lovely people of your hard earned money! The extra expenses will go towards other things for this trip, such as travel expenses, food, hotel stay, etc. Anything left over will go towards other things to help me transition, such as device or testosterone.

If you've made it this far in reading this, I thank you. If you are able to donate, even a dollar would help me so much! If you can't, please feel free to share this with your community, as I can take all the help I can get! I hate asking for money like this, but it is a tough thing to do on my own (Believe me, I'll be saving up as much as I can on my own for this! Student loans make this a little harder but I do what I can).

Thank you so much for reading and donating! I hope to add more information and updates as time goes on!
