Rita Moore is shown looking out the window of her home Wednesday, June 8, 2011 in Corcoran, Calif. Moore is now diagnosed with advanced cancer and could not afford the prescription drug she needed to help stop the spread of the disease. She is now looking at options for end-of-life care. Researchers say seniors with Medicare prescription drug coverage are facing steep copays for the newest kind of cancer drugs. Unlike older drugs, the medications come as pills and do not have to be administered at a clinic. She needed a drug called Sutent for kidney cancer, but the pharmacy was going to charge her $2,400 for a monthÕs supply, more than her income. (AP Photo/Gary Kazanjian)
