For many Mainers faced with a cancer diagnosis, life seems to stop.

They suddenly find themselves in a raging storm of emotions, treatment choices, and financial challenges.  For some, they have tough decisions to make about where, and when, to receive care. There are many others who opt to forgo treatment.  They do so because long, frequent trips to Brewer cause physical and financial burdens on both the patients and their families. Sarah’s House serves all these people, and makes much-needed treatment options more accessible to those who would otherwise choose not to travel.

Advocating the right to quality, affordable health care for every person in Maine. It is important to maintain your health by taking medicines as prescribed. Mainers who cannot afford their medications should know that many public and private programs are prepared to provide free or low-cost prescription medicines to qualifying individuals. Tell your doctor if you can’t afford your medicines. Medical practices can then either help you apply to these programs themselves or refer you to one of Maine’s 15 hospital-based prescription assistance programs. Don’t put yourself at increased risk of infection by skipping the medicines you need to stay well.
