Chasing Life - Denial is not just a River in Egypt (S1E2)

Chasing Life
Review S1E2 - Help Wanted

"It's never a good time to get that kind of news"

As we figured, being alone and having no one to talk to about having cancer can't last for long. April tells her bestie, Beth, that she's sick, and she reacts more like we thought April would with looks of disbelief and crying. Sometimes it's as hard to watch someone go through something, as it is to go through it yourself. As April tries to run around town, acting like she's not sick and nothing is wrong, one can't help but notice that she's moving a little slower and is a lot out of breath. While April seems hellbent on doing absolutely nothing as it relates to her leukemia, Beth is doing the opposite and learning everything she can about the disease. Between dating, getting an evil new supervisor, tracking down the mysterious girl at her fathers grave and covering for her sister, April is finding time for everything except her health.

Chasing Life - Pilot Review

Chasing Life

“Let me save your life then you can go back to hating me”

She’s quick witted, snarky, awkward, savvy and only 24 years old. In an attempt to land the biggest story of her life, April Carver finds out that she has CANCER. Which sucks because her life is just beginning; an amazing best friend, a job that she loves, her crush returning her feelings and a family just starting to get over fathers passing, the timing of this couldn't be worse. I expected for this show to be a cry fest full of love ones mourning, hospitals full of dying patients and a family coming to terms with one of its daughters having cancer and watching how that would affect everyone else’s life. But that’s not what this is; in fact it’s the exact opposite. This isn't Cancer Girl, where the show revolves around her and her illness 24/7; instead this is about 24 year old who happens to have cancer trying desperately for that fact not to overwhelm the rest of her life. Cancer is a pa…
