| Survivor: Breast Cancer
Season 1 of "Chasing Life" on ABC Family is almost over and April is just about ready to start her cancer treatment. See what these two cancer survivors have to say about Season 1 Episode 9, "What To Expect When You're Expecting Chemo."
With just one more episode left in the first season of "Chasing Life", episode 9 is all about those few days right before treatment begins. April is trying to do as much as she can before being hospitalized for a month.
She is also no longer hiding her feelings for Leo, and she checks up on him after being hospitalized. Still expressing her opinions about Leo's potential life-saving surgery, April flat out tells Leo that if he does not have the surgery and try to fight for his life then she wants nothing more to do with him. April and Leo are both connected through their cancer but they each have a different take on how it is going to affect their lives. Leo has come to turns with his eventual death but April is unwilling to accept the same fate for herself. She is determined to beat her cancer and continue living a full life after it is all over with.
While this is all going on, Beth unknowingly reveals April's cancer diagnosis to a coworker. Trying to avoid this exact situation because she did not want any special treatment while she is at work, April is surprised when the least likely person in the office has the most genuine reaction. Suddenly having her office know about her cancer doesn't seem all that bad.
The episode ends with Dominic, who is currently in Europe, finally finding out about April's cancer. With chemo starting the next day for April we are left with so many questions. Is Dominic going to come back for April? Is Leo going to get the surgery after all? And most importantly, what is going to happen to April?
We asked two cancer survivors to weigh in on the events of this week's episode to see how they relate.
Tune in next Tuesday, August 13th at 9/8c for the season 1 finale.
