We are paying a fighting tribute to Diem Brown. The heartbreaking tragedy of the vivacious Diem Brown still haunts us. Only being a year older than both of us when she sadly passed away. Diem became known to audiences after competing in a series of MTV reality challenge shows and quickly became a fan favorite due to her tumultuous relationship with Chris “CT” Tamburello, and the fact that she was so open about her battle with cancer. After first being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, became involved in spreading awareness and created the MedGift website for those in treatment. After six years of remission, her ovarian cancer returned in 2012, before again going into remission in 2013. When it returned yet again in 2014, it had metastasized and spread to her colon and stomach. The last stage of her third battle against cancer was shown in the series, Battle of the Exes II. Diem died on November 14, 2014, at the age of 34. She spent her final hours in the company of friends and family.
