Daytime and secret relationship intensifies as Ashley submits to his experimental medical treatments in the hope of surviving her tragic terminal illness
TTHE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS he last thing Ashley wants is for her family and friends to discover that her brain tumour has recurred and that it is inoperable, she can no longer be treated and is dying.
Now that she’s stumbled upon Dr Simon Neville’s experimental medical treatments along with his promise that he can perform miracles, Ashley is eager to keep her subsequent investment in his research a secret. She wants to undertake the risky procedure of her own volition without interference from anyone.
However, Ashley (Eileen Davidson) raises some of her family’s suspicions about her behaviour when she passionately sanctions the idea of involving Simon (Michael E. Knight) in the efforts to help Billy (Burgess Jenkins) recover from his injuries. Her strong belief in Simon’s assertions that the other doctors’ decision to perform surgery on Billy could kill him motivates Ashley to champion Simon’s suggestion
“I’m the one who is supposed to die, not you.”
