My name is Lily-Nichole Robinson. I’m a 28 year old trans woman from Sheffield, UK and I am presently looking to raise money for facial and vocal feminisation surgery. I have a very prominent brow bone and an extremely deep voice, both of which cause me pretty significant dysphoria and pretty much 99% of the time in my day to day life, particularly by strangers I am misgendered as male which is really depressing and wears on my mental health.
I am aiming to raise £22,000 in total. £15,000 of this fundraiser will be going to facial feminisation surgery and related costs, while the other £7,000 will be going to vocal feminisation surgery and related costs such as speech therapy which is required before and after. I have had speech therapy before but it has unfortunately not had a significant impact on my voice.
I presently work in education and security, but these are gig economy jobs and as well as this I am on limited capability for work and work related activity due to the fact I have severe brittle asthma, meaning I don’t generally have a lot of money to save. And more recently, on the 22nd May 2021, I got hit by a taxi which ran a red light, breaking my tibia and fibula in my left leg and my back in 4 places which has further impacting the money I have available to put aside to save.
I do presently have £350 of my goal already and any help to reach my final goal would be very much appreciated.
Thank you ????
