MTV star Diem Brown dies at 32


Reality star Diem Brown has died after a long battle with cancer.

In 2006, the “Real World/Road Rules Challenge” star revealed that she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer just weeks prior to her first appearance on MTV’s “The Real World.” TMZ reports that earlier this week, Diem was surrounded by family in a New York hospital as her condition took a turn for the worse.

In August, Brown announced that she had been diagnosed with stomach and colon cancer after she collapsed on set while filming “The Challenge.” It eventually spread to her liver and lymph nodes as well.


Along the way, Brown became an advocate for others facing similar trials, founding MedGift, a support registry for people battling illness.

“I want people to know that the fight is worth it,” she told People late last month. “And that’s something that’s so important for me.”

    PROOF that anyone can fall ill at anytime sometime younger people in their 20s think they got years to go .,and devalue older folks as washed up and too old for everything .. but little do they know age aint nothing but a number when it comes to health if you 23 and is not cleaning your colon you can just vanish in no time ..faster than a 90 yo person who sits up in a nursing home playing cards and laughting at life .. ummm
