Dear Dr. Reed, My name is Lulu and I am from Hawaii and heard you have financial assistance for sexual reassignment surgery. I have been living as a woman since high school and am now 27, work as a secretary and there is not a lot of money in my job. I have seen your work both personally, you did Francine from Foster Village near Honolulu. I have been looking at your web-site http://srsmiami.com/male-to-female-gender/ for several years. I am sending you a photo of myself, and I think you’ll agree it’s about time. Lulu
Appreciate your interest. We have ladies come her from all over the world. Given your travel distance, we would recommend you stay for about 2 weeks at a nearby motel. Florida statutes require that you have a female in the room with you. If you have a friend in Miami, that could save on travel costs. I am enclosing 2 large attachments, one an article we wrote several years ago with intraoperative photos and another a letter on “getting ready.” Anne our office manager is the maker of deals and the brains behind pa, so call her and you 2 girls can talk together. Some insurance companies help pay for transsexual surgery and if done in a hospital setting that could certainly reduce your fee. Also of interest is that 50% of our patients come in with a sponsor, could be a boyfirend, loved one, Mom or Dad, or church group.
You have a dream, we have a mission.
Have a restful Sunday,
Harold M. Reed, M.D.
