Alex's Top Surgery

Alex's Top Surgery

Personal message

This back-a-buddy is for my fiance and partner in life, Alex. 

He's been on the waiting list for Top Surgery in South Africa for the past 3 and a half years, but with the knowledge that it may still take upwards of 20 years to reach him (because of South Africa's lack of resources) - I'm hoping to raise enough funds here to cover his surgery. 

He has spent many dedicated months jumping through hundreds of unnecessary procedural hoops to start his hormone replacement therapy and has carried everything to do with his transition, for the most part, alone. 

Watching him reach milestones with hrt has been incredibly rewarding and I see every day how grateful he is to be in a position where he can obtain such life-changing medication, but I can also see things that bother him that I can't pretend to understand. 
To put it simply, this surgery would completely change how he lives his life.

The donations would go into a savings account for Alex until the time that we can secure the surgery. The funds will cover all medical expenses and post-op aftercare.
 
Gender reassignment surgery truly is a life-saving surgery and should be treated as such. I understand that this is no small amount of money to be raised quickly and/or easily, but - and I am biased - he truly deserves the help. Any help at all would go a long long way and make a World Of Difference for him.
