Evelina Gonzalez speaks with a psychologist at the Central Hospital in Maracay, Venezuela, on Oct. 28, 2013. She was supposed to have surgery in July following chemotherapy but was forced to shuttle from hospital to hospital in search of an available operating table, her tumor in the meanwhile more than doubling in size. The hospital's physicians sent some 300 patients in need of cancer operations home last month. Supply shortages, unsanitary conditions and equipment failures have forced them to scratch all but emergency surgeries. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos)
