Becoming Donovan is an effort to raise money for my top surgery.

Becoming Donovan was created by myself (Donovan) to help raise money for my top surgery. For the past few years I have been struggling with my gender and I have recently decided to start transitioning. Insurance will not cover any of the costs associated with this surgery. I identify as transgendered and this top surgery would mean that I'm one step closer to finding peace of mind and finally being comfortable in my own skin for the first time in my life.

Here's The Deal 

The entire cost of the surgery is $6,500. It is a FTM Top Surgery® Procedure Double Incision Method with Dr. Garramone.  I am trying to raise at least $5,000. You can find more information on the surgery here: http://drgarramone.com/blog/costs/ 

$6,500 : Total Fees Include Hospital OR Fees, Surgeon’s Fee, all Breast sizes, liposuction and Pathology Fee. The Surgical and Pathology fees of $5,200 must be paid to our office at least 3 weeks prior to the surgery date. The Hospital & Anesthesia Fees of $1,300 must be paid directly to the hospital by the patient on the date of surgery.

Your contributions and donations would cover hospital, pathology and surgeon's fees. 

The Impact

This surgery is a lifechanging experience that some transmen do not get to experience. Hopefully with the support that I receive from you, my body will reflect how I feel in my heart. As of right now, this is not the case. I do not represent the entire trans community, nor do I speak for it, but any donation whether it be $1 or $5 would mean so much and would really help.

Other Ways You Can Help!

Can't donate? Not a problem. Here's how you can help

  • Ask someone who could donate a dollar or two
