Chasing Life S1 Ep 9 What to Expect When You’re Expecting Chemo Preview


Here’s a promo for this week’s episode of Chasing Life. I think when the show returns, after it’s summer break, I’m going to have to start recapping it when part 2 launches in the winter. It’s quickly become one of the few shows of the summer that I really look forward to every week.

I’m hoping they stick with The Fosters and Chasing Life but I seriously doubt they will. I refuse to go down the Pretty Little Liars circle jerk rabbit hole.
