Finn's Top Surgery
Raising money for gender affirming surgeryWellington
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 everyone ! There’s only six days left to wait for my surgery now.
I’ve just finished sending off my admission forms to the hospital and my consent for surgery to Dr Glasson. I have a stockpile of extra pillows and button up shirts and am working on curating a list of Netflix shows to watch. Send me your recs!
I’ve also finished paying both the hospital fee and surgeon fee in full, leaving me with just the anaesthetist's fee to pay after surgery.
Because of all you wonderful people sharing this page and donating, I’m going to be able to have this surgery without owing money to the hospital or to anyone and I’m really, really grateful for that. Thank you all so much for all your love and support over the past few months.
