Brace yourselves because there's a new drama debuting on ABC Family tonight and viewers will be sent on an addicting roller coaster ride of emotions.
However, if you think Chasing Life is just a show about cancer then you had better think again. Starring Italia Ricci, the drama follows April, a spunky yet highly relatable 24-year-old who is determined to make it in Boston as a well-respected journalist. She's intelligent, she's passionate, and, yes, she also happens to have leukemia.
"One of the best things about Chasing Life is that it's a show about a girl who's living life, but it just has a little side of cancer," Ricci exclusively shared with E! Online. "Cancer doesn't have to take over your whole world and that's something that April goes through in deciding not to let it have the power that it could."
