The Young and The Restless spoilers tease that The Young and The Restless is partnering with The American Cancer Society for a breast cancer awareness storyline!
Y&R Spoilers: Sharon Newman Is Facing Breast Cancer
As viewers of The Young and The Restless know, Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) is facing breast cancer, and when she first found the lump in her breast had kept it a secret from her family and friends, at least until she could get her mammogram and ultrasound to see what was going on and if it was fluid or solid. If it is fluid, it is probably a benign cyst, but if it is solid, then it could be cancerous and a biopsy would be needed.
The mammogram is inconclusive, but the ultrasound shows that it is a solid mass and she will need a biopsy and a consultation with an oncologist. She is particularly concerned about the reactions of and the effects of a cancer battle on her teenage daughter, Faith Newman (Alivia Alyn Lind). Once she gets the results from the biopsy, Sharon informs her live-in boyfriend Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
He then joins her to meet with an oncologist to start to get more information about her illness and how to treat it. Sharon will be leaning heavily on her friends and family, who will all be supportive, in the upcoming weeks as she battles the deadly cancer. At the end of the episode, which is scheduled to be broadcast on January 9th, will appear a CBS Cares PSA starring Case that will discuss early detection.
