April had a lot of stuff going on in her life—got her first news assignment, a date with her crush at work, a family to take care of—until the C-word hit her. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Previously on “Chasing Life” (Pilot Episode Season 1), April (Italia Ricci) landed on her first reporting task, and that involved going to a blood drive and interview a fallen athlete.  She saw her estranged uncle, Dr. George, in the event and helped her past through. While donating blood, she was engaging in a small conversation with the athlete. He sensed that she was a journalist. However, before he could completely get distressed, April fainted. Did April get the interview? Yes, she did. While in the hospital, she took the opportunity to interrogate the athlete.

Her uncle ran a blood test on her sample and found out that April has cancer. When April would not take his calls, George went to her house to confront her. Then he told her that she has cancer. April was, as expected, in denial. She was resolved on going through with this battle alone. She did not want to ruin her mom’s (Mary Page Keller) happiness now that she got back on the dating game, online dating, She was not ready to tell her sister, Brenna (Haley Ramm), who has more issues to deal with, and her best pal, Beth (Aisha Dee).

Her possible chance to love with co-worker Dominic (Richard Brancatisano) somehow went cloudy. Dominic heard April’s conversation with her uncle, and he jumped into a conclusion that she was involved with him. Then again, April was able to explain things to Dominic.

April visited her dad’s grave. There, she saw a young woman who was paying the grave a visit too. Could she be April’s half-sister? Meanwhile, why do you think Uncle George was estranged from their family? Hit the comments box below and let your thoughts be heard.
