Hi my name is Lee and I am 26 years old.
I am a Friendly, well-mannered intelligent and independent young lady.
A friend of mine told me about this site and I was eager to find out what this site is all about and it is amazing how total strangers are willing to help each other out.
I don’t have a story that will necessarily touch your heart in a way that some of the other stories will but I am really hoping and praying to get help so that I can get the operation.
We have always been a very sporty family and we are very adventurous. As I got older my breasts started to develop and I started to become very self-conscious about my breasts. I started to lose interest in any type of sport and didn’t want to do anything with my family. At 18years I was wearing a F-cup bra.
In 2009 I saved money to go for a breast reduction, it was the best decision I have ever made. I was a new person, I started participating in sport again and I started to fully enjoy life again. Now, almost 7 years later I am having trouble with my breasts. My breasts started to hang, but in a way that I can’t wear a proper bra anymore as my breasts are hanging too much.
I went to see the Plastic Surgeon and he indicated that my skin is very elastic and therefore my breasts started to hang this way. SO now I need to go for a Mastopexy. It got to a stage where I am only wearing sport bras cause if I bend forward my breasts will fall out of my bra. I am a pre-school teacher and bending forward is a daily thing for me. I have a passion for outreaches and helping people, especially in Africa. I want to make it more permanent to work/teach in Africa. I adore children and I know that teaching is part of my calling. But my breasts is yet again making me feel very self-conscious.
I have started at a new school this year and my monthly income has dropped a lot, but I am at a place where I LOVE what I am doing so I am happy. I am saving as much as I can as I want to get the operation during the July holidays as I am off from work and I am going up in Africa for outreaches in 2018.
So now I'm doing something I would not normally do, and that is ask for help, I’m asking for your help please, no matter how small or big. The funds will be highly appreciated.
Thank you for reading my story.
