In all honesty, I’ve never done something like this before. I literally have waited to do this, only
because I’m scared of the outcome. I’ll do my best to explain why I’m raising this money.

My name is Chase. I am transgender FtM . 24yrs young. I have been injecting testosterone for over 1yr. Being a African American transmanis not the easiest in today’s society. My mental stability is suffocating with gender dysphoria, and each day I regret being born a female.

I recently just had a consultation for top surgery which went wonderful. The only thing that worries me is the cost of said surgery. I’m not going to sugarcoat this. Living in Utah and with a government so discriminatory, it’s hard to know whether or not my rights as a transgendered human  being could be stripped . Which does include the right to be approved or denied for top surgery. If denied I would need to pay over 7k to cover all surgery fees. Unfortunately I only work a minimum wage job, and I don’t foresee earning that amount anytime soon.

Top surgery is very important to me . It would rid of my body dysphoria, and more importantly all the self doubt that comes with it. I hate looking in the mirror and hating my body. The terrible thoughts that come to mind thinking “will I ever become the person I would love to be?” . Testosterone has helped me through so much, but Top surgery would be the icing on the cake.

If you’ve read this much it means a lot. There’s no pressure to donate a certain amount, or even donate at all. I would love to share my story with those who are interested . Share, comment, donate , or do one / all of the above! Thank you so much for reading & I hope good fortune comes your way .
