Gazette Newspapers

When doctors found a “suspicious mass” in her breast, Norma Ann Dawson said she didn’t have the money to pay the deductible on the additional tests and care she needed to treat the cancer. The 63-year-old, who was diagnosed in December 2011, said the only reason she is alive today is because of the help she found at St. Mary Medical Center, specifically St. Mary Sabina Sullivan Women’s Health Center. About 7,500 women come to the center each year for care, and about 90% of them have little or no health insurance.
