Weʼre raising £4,500 to rectify an issue that impacts on me daily, and has been a major issue that many wouldn't even realise.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
When I was 13 years old I noticed that one of my breasts wasn't developing by the age of 16 I had one C cup and the other wasn't even an A cup but also had a weird tubular shape to it. Despite constant back and forth to the doctors the NHS refused to help me with the issue and at the age of 21 I had to go private.
By 21 I had an E cup and a AA cup, I saved and saved for the operation only for it to go terribly wrong. I ended up having an implant in the right side and an uplift on the left. Turns out the very well known clinic had given me an infection so the stitched started to disolve and I ended up with a hole the size of a 50p coin on the side I had the implant and on the side I had the up lift it started to all open up.
After 4 months of hell and being ill the clinic agreed to re do my operation to see if they could help rid the scars and actually make my breast symetrical. Unfortunately there was nothing to do.
Now it is 10 years later and ideally it needs to be replaced. I am wanting to see if not only can they replace it but if they can help rid the scarring and make my breasts somewhat similar.
All I have ever wanted is to not feel ashamed of my breast, be able to wear a halter neck and not be ashmaed or embarrassed of my breasts in front of my partner.
I have been trying to get the money together but as my operation sn't a standard boob job it is a lot more expensive than normal, and given the hellish time I have had the past 18 months it has made this all a gruelling nightmare to do so.
Thank you for any support shown or made xxx

About the fundraiser
Basildon, United Kingdom
I am a 31year old woman who has never felt comfortable in my own body, boobs are something associated with being a woman but when yours never develop properly, almost lose your life and then are left with serious scarring it has a big affect on your confidence.
