This is so sad. Reality star Diem Brown, 32, is facing yet another health setback. On Sept. 25, she was hospitalized in New York City after new tumors were discovered in her kidneys, preventing her from pursuing chemotherapy for the cancer in her colon.
Just as Diem Brown, 32, was to begin chemotherapy, she suffered yet another setback on her road to recovery. Doctors discovered on Sept. 25 a blockage in her kidneys which turned out to be tumors. This, on the heels of the discovery that she is suffering from colon cancer, is absolutely devastating. However, the “Challenge” star bravely remains positive.
Diem Brown: Cancer Found In Kidneys While Undergoing Chemo For Colon Cancer
“I was so frustrated that it seems my body keeps throwing me curve balls over and over,” Diem told People. “It’s hard to keep your spirit and your mind positive … But I’m glad we are catching these curve balls and fixing them, one by one.”
That’s such an amazing attitude!
“They told me there I had complete blockage of my left kidney and 75 percent blockage of my right because of swelling and tumors,” Diem told the mag, “so they had to do a surgery and put in stents so things could flow normally again.”
Diem Brown: Support Her On MedGift
On-again off-again boyfriend CT shared the above photo on his Instagram on Sept. 29, highlighting Diem’s need for funding her latest struggle. Fans can donate over at MedGift, the website she founded to help others find funding for their medical emergencies.
“It feels strange having to create this Diem support page on the very site she’s dedicated the past 7 years of her life building,” Diem’s family wrote on her MedGift page. “Diem has always been a strong candidate for her own page, but she never wanted the focus of MedGift to be about her obstacles.”
We can’t believe how brave Diem remains in the face of this latest struggle, and our hearts go out to her.
