Family, friends, and fans are mourning the loss of Diem Brown. The MTV reality star from The Challenge passed away early Friday after a near decade-long battle against cancer. Brown was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 23 and was in the clear in 2013, until tragically the cancer returned to her stomach and colon, then spread to her lymph nodes and liver. Throughout her fight against cancer, Brown documented the many physical and emotional challenges she endured as a means of raising awareness and connecting with those who also suffered.

What is perhaps Brown's greatest achievement was creating MedGift, an online registry for people to donate to those facing medical-related hardships. Her selfless work and inspiring attitude will live on for many years to come.

In memory of her too-short, but incredible life, here are some of her most meaningful words.
