TV show description:
This dramatic series follows a twenty-something aspiring journalist whose world is turned upside down when she learns that she has cancer.

Smart, charismatic and quick-witted, April Carver (Italia Ricci) seems poised to have it all. She’s landed a job at a major Boston newspaper and a date with her super-sexy co-worker — all while managing to be a supportive daughter, grand-daughter and sister to her family (who lost their patriarch to a tragic accident two years earlier).

In an unexpected twist of fate, April lands in the hospital where her estranged uncle, George, works as an oncologist. While there, she learns the devastating news that she has cancer. However, April refuses to give up her dreams and goals and fights to keep her life from unraveling.

April’s mother is Sara Carver (Mary Page Keller), a professional therapist who’s beautiful, smart, good-hearted and fiercely protective of her family. Following the sudden death of her husband, Sara is nervous but finally ready to return to the dating scene.

Sara’s other daughter is Brenna (Haley Ramm). She’s a rebellious teen who will always choose a party over homework — a habit that’s gotten her into serious trouble in the past. She continues to test her mother’s patience and envies the perfect image her sister April seems to effortlessly uphold.

April’s fun-loving but level-headed best friend and loyal confidant is Beth Kingston (Aisha Dee); a vibrant, young Australian-born girl in her twenties with a keen eye for fashion. Beth still works as a barista at the same coffee shop April left months ago to pursue her dreams. She optimistically believes that the best is yet to come and is determined to enjoy all that a carefree life has to offer in the meantime.

Cultured and attractive, Dominic Russo (Richard Brancatisano) is the Arts and Entertainment reporter at April’s Boston newspaper. Dominic’s job gets him into all the coolest gigs in the city and his irresistible charm could get him any girl he wants, but he has his eye on April from the moment she sets foot in the office. Their flirtatious banter finally leads to what seems like the perfect date, but her illness threatens the possibility of a real relationship without Dominic even knowing why.

The son of a wealthy gubernatorial candidate, Leo Hendrie (Scott Michael Foster) struggles with bitterness at living in his father’s shadow and being tethered to his family’s money. He has more in common with April than she might expect from their initial, rather unpleasant encounter.

George Carver (Steven Weber) is a pediatric oncologist whose connection to his brother Thomas’ tragic death two years ago has isolated him from the Carver women. In a twist of fate, he discovers April is sick so he must confront his past demons.

I absolutely love chasing life, I hope the show goes on for many more seasons. It makes me feel like I have someone who knows how it feels to deal with cancer. My uncle died of cancer last year, and Chasing Life makes me know people relate to how IT feel and I like to see how Aprils family deals with it.

I love this show! I was diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma this year and started chemotherapy in June. This show was coming on on Tuesdays, which is the same day that I have my treatments on. It has really been helping me and giving me something to look forward to on TV. I found it ironic that it aired at the time it did, almost like it was meant for me to watch. Looking forward to it coming back on. #ImHooked #NoOneFightsAlone
