Hi, Im Tasha. This is my story.

From the age of 12, I have had larger beasts than most. By the time I was 17, I was already a G cup bra and suffering with back ache. This is when I first approached the NHS for a reduction. I was turned down due to lack of medical reasoning behind the surgery. I tried different doctors at different locations and begged. Each time I was refused. Fast forward to 2017, I am now 34 and a size NN cup. I recently moved back to my home time and booked an appointment at the GP for a general check and happened to ask for a reduction. To my surprise, he said yes!! For the next 18 I have had to jump through hoops and see various people in order to have my surgery. The doctor at the womens health department at DCH diagnosed me with gigantism and that my breasts will keep growing so i qualifed for surgery. On 29/01/19 I had a 5 hour surgery to remove 6KG of tissue from my breasts. One week on and I am already feeling so much better. So as a thank you, I would like to do a sponsored walk all over Dorchester and donate the money to the womens health department so they can help other women like me. I’d also like to buy a couple of little hampers, one for the GP who agreed to help, one for the surgeon who agreed to do the surgey and one for the staff on the ward who looked after me. Please donate to this cause and hopefully help others in a similar posistion to me and help those with more serious issues. Thank you for your time
