Before the past few weeks, if you mentioned “the challenge” to me, I would presume we’re about to chat it up about my favorite reality TV show MTV’s “The Challenge” and not something related to ice buckets and Lou Gehrig’s Disease. During the filming of MTV’s “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes 2” in Panama, cast member and two-time ovarian cancer survivor Diem Brown reportedly collapsed. US Weekly reported, “She was airlifted to New York City and underwent two emergency surgeries.” Brown is in her third bout with cancer; this time, it’s her colon. To help defray the medical costs, a donation page has been set up for Brown on the patient registry website she founded called MedGift.

Fellow MTV reality TV star Johanna Botta took to her Facebook page today to acknowledge that $8000 in monetary contributions to Diem Brown’s MedGift page were raised so far today alone and to garner more support for her friend.
To help aid the momentum, I am challenging my readers to CLICK HERE or click on the graphic below and make a donation as well. I have already donated. There are no ice buckets or videos required, however, there is a hashtag #diemsnextchallenge that you can use to help spread the word and stay up to date with Brown’s progress.

Etsy handcrafted bracelet with phrase ‘Where’s there’s a will there’s a way’ made by Cara Maria Sorbello to raise money for Diem Brown.

Brown’s MTV family is showing support for Brown in all sorts of ways. Just today, I ran across Cara Maria Sorbello’s Etsy bracelet made in Brown’s honor to help raise money to pay for Brown’s medical bills. She’s selling them for $18, and according to Sorbello’s Etsy listing, “75% of the cost of each bracelet will go to Diem’s MedGift Fund.” The handmade bracelet includes the caption, “Where there’s a will there’s a way.”
