Her Bills Exceeded Her Pay

As a nurse, Mary Ann worked 40 hours a week and overtime whenever she could. She always paid her bills on time and helped to take care of her extended family. Then she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Mary AnnAs a nurse, Mary Ann worked 40 hours a week and overtime whenever she could. She always paid her bills on time and helped to take care of her extended family. Then she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

After months off work for surgeries and treatments, Mary Ann was overwhelmed with overdue bills, a mound of new medical bills and only a meager short-term disability income. She applied to several assistance programs, but was rejected due to her income. 

A friend told Mary Ann about the St. Vincent de Paul Charitable Pharmacy (SVDP), where she now gets her medications. Without the Charitable Pharmacy Mary Ann said, “I don’t know what I would do. My bills simply exceeded my pay.”

She was finally approved for Medicaid, but some of the generic medications covered by Medicaid do not react well with the other prescriptions so she came back to SVDP until that can be adjusted. “Hopefully, I won’t need SVDP much longer,” said Mary Ann.

The SVDP Charitable Pharmacy was a Weathering the Economic Storm grantee. When this story was written in 2010, $245,800 has been given in the area of prescription medication assistance.
