After three cancer diagnoses in rapid succession since August, the MTV reality star Diem Brown has passed away from cancer at age 32. A recurring member on MTV’s ‘The Challenge,’ Brown went on to appear on ‘Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat’, where she frequently discussed her ovarian cancer, which spread to other parts of her body.
She was tweeting about her illness as recently as Tuesday, saying, “I NEED PRAYERS and advice my doctors are seemingly giving up but I won’t & can’t rollover. Whatever option I have to LIVE I’m grabbing.”Brown founded a crowdfunding site for medical patients, MedGift.com. Anyone with a health-related hardship can start a fundraiser, create a calendar to coordinate care and daily tasks, and give progress updates to their support network.An MTV spokesperson shared kind words about Brown with TheWrap, “Diem was a true fighter and brought passion to everything she touched. We will miss her.”
