Diem Brown Dies: Her Final Moments Before Losing Her Battle With Cancer
Diem Brown was known as a fighter and she didn’t want to ruin that reputation by giving up during her difficult fight with cancer. “We kept telling her, ‘This is not giving up. You have fought enough,” her close friend Julie Rotondi told People.
Diem’s condition was worsening and any further treatments may have prolonged her life, however, Julie admitted that it would have been a “horrible, horrible ending.” That is why Diem decided to end her life in the most peaceful way possible — by ending her treatments.
In her final hours, Diem’s friends remembered her amazing legacy. “We talked about how she’s affected so many people, then we would switch it over to all the funny stories about her,” said Julie. “Still to the end, she was putting in her two cents.”
Diem’s sister, Megan, who had been by her side everyday, was stuck in traffic on the day of her death. Diem held on as long as she could to get the chance to say goodbye to her sis. She died within minutes of Megan’s arrival — so sad yet so incredible. She truly was such a stong woman.
“She was very peaceful when she passed,” Julie shared.
