“The Young and the Restless” airs Weekdays on CBS. Weeknights on Pop TV. Anytime on CBS.com or the CBS app on Android and iOS enabled devices.

“The Young and the Restless” brought the soap opera community to tears this past May with an emotional and very well planned memorial for the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), who passed away due to an illness that same month. And now the sudser is pulling out all of the stops yet again to honor the character Cooper played for 40 years. The emotional storyline has already begun playing out with several of Genoa City’s residents receiving letters from the grand dame, and Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) says this is just the start of a powerful story arc that will change the small Wisconsin town in more ways than one.

As first noted on the Friday, August 16 episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," several of Katherine Chancellor's friends and family received postcards informing them to be at the grand dames home on that particular date and at "8:00pm sharp." Yesterday, following news of when the show will honor the life of Katherine on screen, the show unveiled a website dedicated to character that includes a gallery on the site that breaks down the postcards each of her friends and family received, some of which were sent before Katherine decided to have people gather at her home.
Patrick Swayze died of pancreatic cancer in 2009. The fatal disease took the life of Apple CEO Steve Jobs in 2011. Even Bonnie Franklin, who guest-starred on “The Young and the Restless” as Sister Celeste just last year lost her battle with the deadly cancer in March. And Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), having lost his uncle several years ago to the very same affliction, is speaking up once again to let the world know that it’s time we put a stop to the horrific and painful cancer that claims the lives of nearly 40,000 people each year.
