Surviving Jack

Series Summary
A former member of the military and an oncologist, Dr. Jack Dunlevy is a no-nonsense kind of guy who doesn't feel compelled to sugar-coat the truth.

He tries to guide his son, Frankie, who is awkwardly navigating freshman year of high school, and he faces challenges from his 17-year-old daughter, Rachel, who becomes a handful once she is no longer under the watchful eye of her mother.
