Carla's Gender Reassignment Surgery
Organized by: Carla Lewis
For those that do not know me, I am a 45 year old software developer, transsexual woman, father of two adult children, grandmother of three, wife of a smoking hot goddess, full time student, Air Force veteran, and occasionally I'm a decent person. I will have a beer with you. I've spent the better part of the last decade tirelessly advocating for transgender rights and equality through speaking engagements, rallies, legislative lobbying, and community organization. When I started my transition in 1999, surgery was my goal. Somewhere along the way raising children and paying a mortgage took precedence and with dismay, I accepted I would never have the financial means to finish my transition. Recently, I have learned that my company's insurance policy now covers transition surgery. However, with a deductible of $3000, 20% coinsurance, travel and lodging, and two weeks of unpaid recovery time, I think I can get by with less than $10,000. Help a girl achieve her dream of finally being whole.
