The financial crisis in Greece is taking a heavy toll on the country's health care system.
State-run hospitals are cutting off important drugs and rationing basic medical materials for exhausted doctors, according to Reuters.
"It's a matter of life and death for us," said Persefoni Mitta, head of the Cancer Patients' Association. "Why are they depriving us of life?"
The government hasn't been able to pay some important medical bills. Pharmacists and doctors say they can't pay suppliers because of a growing backlog of unfilled state payments.
Greeks will vote on a new government June 17 in hopes of finding a way to solve the debt crisis.
