Dr. Davis has already broken the bad news to Katie. "You need a kidney transplant," the physician warns, "as soon as possible." However, finding a donor is proving more difficult than anticipated. "She already reached out to everyone," Katie cries to Brooke and Bill, "and no one was the right match!"
But even as things look dire for Katie, Bill continues to try and keep her spirits up, bringing their son to visit and remind her what she's fighting for. He's also stopping at nothing to find a way to save the life of the woman he loves. "My son is not losing his mother," Bill vows. "And I'm not losing my Katie. There has to be some way you can save her."
Still, it's growing harder and harder for Katie to see a future of any kind for herself. As Donna and Brooke fight back tears as they offer their support, Katie breaks down with her sisters. "I don't want to leave you," she sobs. "I'm so scared. I don't want to die!"
