After undergoing a biopsy and learning that she has breast cancer, Sharon initially tried keeping it to herself but the emotional toll was becoming noticeable to everyone around her. “A lot of people who care about you want to know what’s going on,” Nick says, concerned. With tears in her eyes, Sharon finally confesses: “I have cancer.”
With that weight no longer on her shoulders, Sharon is enveloped by the love of her family as they all come to her aid. “You don’t have to handle everything on your own,” Nick promises her. And Faith is broken up by the news. “Aren’t you scared?” the teen asks, her voice cracking under the emotion. With the support of her loved ones, Sharon has found new strength for this battle. “I’m not going anywhere,” she declares.
Faith is still worried about her mother, and asks her father, “How could this happen to her, Dad?” Nick tries to put on a brave face and assures his daughter: “She’s gonna be okay.” And as Sharon heads to a doctor’s appointment with Rey at her side, she is ready for a fight. “Can I beat this?” she asks.
