Weʼre raising £8,000 to help fund a breast reduction surgical procedure after years of pain, lipomas, insecurity and bullying.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hi my name is Catherine, I'm a 31 year old Veterinary Nurse. Since around the age of 13 I have always been petite with extremely unbearably large, heavy and ugly breasts. During my time at school I was ridiculed by other girls and labelled "promiscuous", purely because of the size of my breasts.This has carried on in to my 30's. I have had several lumps over the years which have been diagnosed as lipomas but reoccur. I have begged my doctor to help with a reduction and presented back, neck and shoulder pain, sores and blisters from bras,but have been refused help. I am expected to pay triple the price of normal sized bras and to just deal with the insecurity that comes with this. On a daily basis, I get stares and unwanted comments, I hide myself under size 18-20 jumpers when I'm a size 12 and often wear 2 bras in a desperate attempt to flatten my breasts.
I have followed doctor's advice over the years, yet no amount of weight loss has reduced the size. I have recently lost 14lbs with no change to them.
There are so many worthy people on here that are so much more deserving but it is something I can no longer live with and a reduction would be life changing and I would be eternally grateful for any help.
My aim is to have my surgery with Mya Cosmetics after much research. And the process would be shared and receipts can be provided. Thank you for taking the time to read my cause. It may seem so minor and selfish compared to others but it truly is a misery.
