    This fundraiser will benefit

    Valerie Vasava

    from Hyderabad, Telangana

Hello! I'm Valerie Vasava 23 year old transgender female based out of hyderabad.

I'm currently on Hormone replacement therapy for last 9 months. With constant counselling and psychotherapy. Until now I was able to afford all expenses out of my savings and with the help of my friend. But with latest development in regards to my medication and mental health it seems difficult for me to afford. New psychiatrist and new medicine. I've been advised to seek more other doctors as the present mental health medication are not effective. It would be very much difficult for me to manage my expenses without the support.

After coming so far on my transitioning journey I cannot risk getting off from Hormoness which will increase my dysphoria more and create more anxiety in me. The reason to start this fundraiser is to get new and better medication for my mental health and able to consult a psychiatrist so that they can treat me with a new and effective medication. Currently I'm on lupride depot injection which is very much important for HRT (hormones replacement therapy) and one injection cost ₹3.8K have to take it every month along with estradiol.

In order to have a proper daily life functioning, now I have to rely on therapy sessions more frequently than the past as my mental health is worsening and current prescribed medication are ineffective.

My expenses on HRT, Therapy and other medical expenses including medication was around ₹5.5K. But now it had increased as ₹14K per month and still increasing.

Any contribution from you is appreciated and it counts. I'm so much thankful and really grateful for all the help you've provided.
