SIRUM - Make access to medication affordable in the USA.

 *This is a sponsored post on the behalf of SIRUM. Clicking on any link is at no cost to you*

 I am sure that you have been here. You get a medication prescribed to you and you simply cannot afford it. Sirum helps to save lives by providing unopened unexpired medications to patients in need. Every year $5 billion of drugs are waster as medications are destroyed, flushed down the toilet or dumped. Sirum are working towards getting health facilities, pharmacies & hospitals, manufacturers & wholesalers, and more to donate these unopened unexpired medications to people in need.  Share your story before the last day of February 2015! 
Do you or your loved ones struggle to afford medications? Join other Americans sharing their stories with Congress and telling them what it’s really like to have to skip or skimp on the medicine you need to live a healthy, productive life. On March 6, SIRUM will deliver these stories to Washington and demand more support for programs and policies that make medicine affordable for all! How cool is that? Now, you are probably wondering how you can get started huh? Go share your story and get started. Questions that will be asked:
  • Your name
  • Best way to reach you
  • What state you live in
  • Age
  • Occupation
  • Which health issues did you or your loved one have trouble treating due to the high cost of medicine?

  1. This is such a great cause, I know I can easily relate!! As can almost everyone I know! We all deserve access to the medications we need, so I will surely be participating and spreading the message!

  2. Thank you for writing about this! After 13 years with chronic illness, I'm finally on disability & Medicare and thus able to afford my medications, but that was not the case for most of those years. Being able to afford the medications & treatments I need (and having the time to pursue them, instead of making myself sicker trying to hold down a job for the insurance benefits) has been life-changing. Not that my quality of life is GREAT, I'm still disabled, but at least I don't have to be miserable 24/7 anymore. I wish everyone had the same opportunity and access to the medications they need.
