We are proud to announce our five finalists for the 2016 Surgery Fund!
As we have said before, this year’s Surgery Fund received so many more applications than we imagined, and it was an incredibly tough decision.
The team at Point 5cc read each and every one of the 637 applications and wanted to award everyone the financial support you need for a gender-confirming surgery. You are all so deserving. We are moved and inspired by your stories of challenge and triumph. Right now, our surgery fund stands at $4,556 and we wish it was far greater to be able to support more folks.
This year’s finalists:
- Nikolai Azrael H., 21 from Vermont
- Mateo D., 20 from New York
- Grey M., 20 from Minnesota
- Elizabeth G., 59 from Virginia
- Diego B., 25 from Arkansas
We have emailed our five finalists to complete two essays and answer a few more questions, and will be making our winner announcement in the second week of January.
