Raising money for gender affirming surgery

Main image

Hello! My name is Finn and I am a 20 year old trans person hoping to raise money for top surgery.

I’ve been medically transitioning through hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for over a year and am wanting to take the next step in my transition.

Unfortunately, the district health board in Wellington does not currently consider top surgery something that should be covered publicly, and my health insurance doesn’t cover it either. This is where this Givealittle comes in.

I have booked a consultation with a surgeon in Wellington for May and have been given a maximum total cost of approximately $19,300.00 to cover the surgical fee, hospital costs, and anaesthetic fees. The surgery will hopefully be in the latter part of this year.

I’ve got about ¼ of the funds saved up and realistically should have at least a third of my own money saved to put towards the surgery when it comes around.

Can you please help me reach my goal? Sharing this or just getting the word out would mean the world as well if you're unable to donate

Use of funds

Funds will be used to pay for a bilateral mastectomy and chest masculinisation.

Hi all!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated or shared this page so far, it means the world to me! Due to the covid-19 situation we’ve had to put a hold on all other fundraising possibilities so I’m extremely grateful for everyone whose checked out this givealittle page

I had my consultation with David Glasson at Bowen Hospital earlier today. Things went really well and we have set a date for surgery on the 16th of June, which is less than a month away!

Thank you all so much for helping me get to this point, please continue to share this page and donate if you can.
