Diem Brown’s cancer fight is over as she succumbed to it last Friday in New York City at the age of 32.
Apart from being featured in seven seasons of MTV’s reality show, “The Challenge,” she was likewise known for being an advocate for cancer awareness.
Diem Brown’s cancer fight also prompted her to start MedGift, a crowdfunding website that assist people who cannot afford to pay for their medical treatment.
It was only last month when doctors discovered that her cancer in stomach and colon already metastasized and affected her liver and lymph nodes.
She has been diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and 2012.
“That was a shocker to me.
I was blown away.
It really crushed a little bit of my spirit,” she admitted.
Nonetheless, she told Us Weekly that she was a “warrior.” Until the very end, the reality star made sure to cupdate her fans.
On Tuesday, she wrote on her social networking accounts: “I NEED prayers and advice.
My doctors are seemingly giving up but I won’t & can’t roll over.
Whatever option I have to LIVE I’m grabbing.” Her friend Julie Rotondi explained Brown’s state of health: “In the end, there is nothing they can do.
It just became so aggressive, so fast.
The cancer was just multiplying at such an aggressive rate that nothing could keep up.
Any treatment that could have maybe prolonged [her life] for a week or two and it would have been a horrible, horrible ending.” Brown reportedly spent her final hours with friends and family.
Several pastors from the Hillsong Church also came by to pray with her.
The day of her death, her sister Megan got stuck in traffic.
Brown did her best to hold on.
She was with her father, brother, and her father’s fiancée.
The former People.com correspondent died a few minutes after Megan arrived.
“It’s a beautiful day out.
She fought to the end.
And that’s how she would want to be remembered.
She’s a fighter,” said Brown’s friend, Alicia Quarles, to E! News .
