April's brother Charlie and her mother Paige are living with her in her small apartment. It's very hard for April to see Charlie so sick and that everyone is being nice to him out of pity. Everyone has been told that Charlie has a rare form of cancer and that he is getting treatment for it at UCLA. Later April tells Mitch that Charlie is not being treated there, they just use him for research. Charlie tragically passes away, and Baywatch, the Los Angeles County Fire Department, and United States Coast Guard, hold a memorial service for him.
