On this day last year, the world lost the amazing Diem Brown: MedGift founder, ovarian cancer spokesperson and star of MTV’s The Challenge. Diem died on November 14, 2014 after a long, hard battle with her third bout of ovarian cancer. Diem was one of The Ashley‘s personal heroes, and during the last months of Diem’s life, The Ashley did her best to keep readers posted on Diem’s battle.
Today, we honor Diem’s life, which was cut short by this terrible disease. MTV is also remembering Diem in a number of ways.
The network recently released the mini-documentary, “Honoring Diem,” which features interviews with Diem’s sister, Megan Brown. Megan has worked tirelessly since Diem’s death to keep her sister’s memory and passion alive. She recently helped launch the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, a Congressional caucus that helps spread awareness of ovarian cancer.
