Faced with the realization that her illness will likely kill her soon, Cathy is forced to finally live her life to its full potential instead of just getting by. At first, she decides not to tell her family and friends about her diagnosis. Her secrecy causes issues because, as the series progresses, her behavior seems increasingly more bizarre to her loved ones.
