Diem Brown, who rose to fame as a competitor on MTV’s “The Challenge” series and later became an entertainment reporter, has died after a long battle with cancer. She was 32.

Brown first appeared on MTV as a contestant in the network’s 2006 reality show “Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat.” She went on to compete on several additional installments of “The Challenge” series.

In August 2014, during her eighth “Challenge” for MTV, Brown collapsed during filming and she later revealed she had been diagnosed with colon cancer. She worked as a blogger for People magazine as she received cancer treatments.

On Tuesday, she tweeted that her doctors were “giving up” but she was determined to fight the disease.

“I need prayers and advice my doctors are seemingly giving up but I won’t & can’t rollover. Whatever option I have to LIVE I’m grabbing!” she wrote.
