Hi my name is Ken I am trying raise money not for myself but for my good friend Sarah, but before I go, I would like to tell you about her. I meet her around 7 years when we worked at the same company I was living in different town and had to drive to work, but when my car broke down she offered me a place to stay until I could get back home. Unfortunately my car was a right off the problem with the engine would cost too much. So she offered her living room to me until I could back on my feet not once but twice. She helped me through my divorce, giving me help and support, and offered me and my new girlfriend help and support when I found out she was an alcoholic. But the relationship was not to last and she offered me a place to live once again. Where we both got into trouble through phone calls and Facebook from my now ex-girlfriend where she used her friends to start a slander campaign which Sarah has never blamed me for.
Sarah was not always a she but he, she was born in to a very Christian and Military family which was difficult for her. She was in the process of helping her farther understand about transgender people before she informed him about herself. Understanding that it would difficult for him given his Military back ground, that his boy was girl. But before she could her farther was seriously injured working as a police officer with the Metropolitan Police. He spent a year in hospital where she would spend all her free time by his side. She would go to work, then to the hospital, come home late at night for an hour or two before going back to work, which she kept up with for the whole year. Never once telling her farther about her condition, not wanting to add to his problems. But she did help him by changing his bedding, bandages, Catheter and helping him out of his bed to his then wheelchair. But only after a week out of the hospital he died. Given Sarah her biggest regret not telling her father, knowing he will never knowing he will never know his little girl. A year and half later she come out to her mother being a Nurse she thought she would understand knowing transgender people. But she left without a word moving to the other side of the country with her new boyfriend. She then started looking after her brother and his girlfriend who decided to stay, but not paying the rent on their home left them homeless so she gave them a home. And once again they also left without a word stealing a large number of her belongings after they learned of her condition. She is now left with no family to turn to.
Sarah is the most loving, kind person you would be likely to know. She always helps people in need, I have recently found out from her colleagues at work how she giving away her shoes she kept in her bag to patients in need. And how when patients who need to call home, she give them her to use her mobile phone some time for hours. She is also a very creative person with a great make do and mend attitude. And Is always happy when repairing computers, iPhones and is great at DIY when she has the money. But she has trouble making new friends, a problem made worst after coming out, which is way she so good at repairing broken electrical equipment and DIY as that what she did growing up, hiding from the world.
Although she would never ask for help herself, I am trying give her back something she did for so many people and as I am moving back to my home town but before I do, I would like to help raise money to give Sarah a bright new future. I asking for help raise money for two thing. The first being new teeth after she was in an accident at work she was left with a broken nose and teeth. She was refused access to the accident book and after contacting the Union for help she was fired. Her case was badly managed and she was left with no case and broken teeth. The second is what she has giving me a home. Although she has a council flat it really the worse place for her with rising damp leaving mould everywhere no insulation, widows which will not fully close, and a hot water which ether makes very little hot water or continuously brakes down and neighbours using the halls as toilets. But the council unwilling to fix everything but the boiler, they still take half of her wages in rent before the rest of the bills. She also keeps get a lot of abuse from neighbours and people hanging around the flat about being transgendered, People unwilling to understand how its not a life choice but a choice to fix a mistake from birth. But after researching what is happing to my friend, I am left worried that after the deeply invasive surgery, that her home will kill her. She has been designing an off grid tiny house, spending many hours a day researching and designing her new home. Which would give her a safe liveable, and movable space, and to be part of a new community, which would also allow her to have everything she needs without all the big bills allowing her save her money for all the upcoming surgery and to start the new life she deserves.
Thank you for your interest.
