Kelly Michaud, from Harrogate, Yorkshire, set up a Go Fund Me page to raise money for surgery after suffering from back pain and chest pain since she was a teenager.

The 26-year-old has been turned down several times by medics for the surgery, and even her local clinical commissioning group has turned down her request.
On her first date, when she weighed just over 11, doctors told her to lose weight.
Determined to have the operation, she went for the second time, but when she returned her appeal was again rejected and she was told to purchase ‘additional professional support bras’ .
The bras, which cost £ 240 to relieve her back and injuries, were not working.
To relieve her pain, she also attended physiotherapy appointments and exercised at the gym, but found nothing was helping.
On her Go Fund Me page, she wrote: “After doing everything they asked I was turned down because they didn’t feel they were in enough pain.
“I always feel like I should cover up. How many tears must I cry before they help me? ‘
She also contacted her Clinical Commission group and asked them to help her lose weight, but was again turned down.
She shared her experience and signed on her Go Fund Me page: “I have looked everywhere for something to help me shrink my breasts and even tried to travel abroad but the stories are scary.
“I now ask for everyone’s help and much-needed support to help myself and others lift the terrible weight off our shoulders.”
She told Yorkshire Live that she had even considered going to Poland for the operation, which would have cost around £ 3,000 for the entire trip, but decided not to do so after reading the risks.
The mother-of-two said that in addition to the physical issues, the emotional impact of her H-size breasts was significant.
“When I was in school I absolutely loved running and was such a good runner, but all the boys would sit on the hill and watch and comment on my breasts afterwards,” she says.
“I didn’t feel safe and just wanted to hide it.
“People think, oh, you have boobs, you should be happy with your size – I really want that size.
So far she has raised £ 628 for her £ 10,000 goal.
