Burbank, CA (July 24, 2014) – April struggles coming to terms with her situation as she starts chemotherapy treatments in “Finding Chemo,” the Summer finale of “Chasing Life,” airing Tuesday, August 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
April begins her battle and month-long hospital stay with mixed emotions. Her resolve to fight starts to wane as her treatments take a toll. Not sure she can be cooped up in the hospital for much longer, April begins to panic. With her family by her side, April makes a surprising outreach to someone who may be the only person who can help her.
Meanwhile, Dominic returns to a much different April then when he left.
