I stopped watching E News when they started showing episodes of SBTB. Like what the hell was that for? And yeah I'm sick of the Kim K bullshit too, Karisa.

Please pull through Diem! Sad We all love you so much!!
User Actions  Following Thank all of u 4 sending advice, support & prayers 2 -Thank you 4 telling her story.   This comment has me worried for some reason...Makes it seems as if it is all in God's hands; like they arent able to try anymore. I am going to be so stressed and anxious these next couple of days.   I cant figure out how to post Faith's pic but it is on her instagram. She is in the hospital, sitting beside Diem in the bed. Diem is laying down and she is wearing pink. She looks so little...
you can take a screen saver Smile

Omg please no...
I saw the picture of Diem on Faith's instagram. She looks so tiny. I couldn't even tell it was someone laying there. Sad Keep Fighting D<3
In life, Diem has proven that she has no quit.  She soldiers on beyond when most people would likely have the capacity to do.  She's also shown so much of her character through all this - resilience, determination, strength, sense of humor despite never-ending obstacles and pain, and also how much she's loved by friends, family and loved ones.  She gets a mixed edit on these shows sometimes, but in real life she comes across as undeniably special. I'm not sure what the next steps are, the E segment wasn't particularly revealing, but there was a Hollywood life article written yesterday that suggested she was still planning to go ahead with her next chemo treatment on November 18th.  Not sure if that is still happening, but here's the link to the article: http://hollywoodlife.com/2014/11/12/diem-brown-cancer-fight-hospitalized...  
I was dreaming of Diem lastnight - all night.  It woke me up a lot because I am worried about her, but it was a deep sleep and she was  happy and enjoying life in the dream so I woke up still worried but feeling a little better. I know this will upset some of you and I am trying to word this as gently as possible.  At this stage and based on what we know - Alicia's comment of it being in God's hands now is exactly on point.  Anyone that has watched someone die of cancer knows exactly what I mean.  This is a very very bad situation right now.  As I mentioned yesterday, I wouldn't say the Dr have given up - they are just running out of options.  The bottom line is cancer is a deadly disease and it can't always be cured.  People die everyday of cancer that want to live.  It sucks!! I am still praying and hoping for a miracle.  I think D is such a fighter and doing everything she possibly can to live.  Her mind is actually what is keeping her alive right now as her body is shutting down.  I am still hopeful but I am reading so many tweets right now of people thinking eating fruits and vegetables or taking Vitamin C or smoking Marijuana is just going to cure her and have her sitting at the Thanksgiving table.  We need a miracle!!  Everyone keep praying and beleiving!
I have also been thinking about Diem nonstop! Such a strong, special woman.
Alicia was so kind in wording her tweet the way she did.  The doctors love Diem, not just her fighting spirit and strong will to live, but they also love the deeply caring person she is.  This battle really is largely out of their hands. They have done what they can to this point, and they are among the best in their profession.  This is truly in God's hands now, and I think it, frankly, is time for those of us praying for her to pray that God's will be done, whatever that may be.   I know God must have some very great purpose for Diem which we can not yet fathom.  I know her affect on my life, personnally, has been profound and has absolutely nothing to do with TV.  I will always feel blessed that she is, forever, my friend.         
Ashley Kelsey is always heading to NYC who is close with Diem.

This makes me incredibly sad...But Alicia said she was stabalized. Do you know the extent of that. Have you been in touch with mutual friends??? Is there any hope left? I am completely devestated and need answers so that I am not so anxious. Okay I'm about to vent so dont get annoyed. Didnt Lance Armstrong, have cancer that spread to his lymph nodes and brain? He survived right? Arent there other stories of people who have survived exteme cases of advanced cancers? Can she not be one of them?? Im just looking for a silver lining, Im so upset.
All of this is just so hard to fathom. Like I think everyone here, Diem has been in the back of mind since she got sick. We're all just looking for some tweet or Instagram post saying that gives us some hope. And each and every time we get some news is even more crushing than the last time. Watching the timeline of this has been torture. It's so impossible to understand.  Lighting a candle for you tonight, Diem. #diemstrong
There is always hope, especially as long as Diem is capable of fighting for her life.   Miracles happen every day in my opinion, although some say it's just something science has yet to understand and explain.  Yes, there is always hope, and I firmly believe in miracles.  I'm also mindful that some things are greater than wishes, dreams and desires:   Diem's greatest dream, she once told me, was to have a loving husband, healthy children and that "white picket fence."  I've prayed that this would be the outcome, that through the pain and this terrible struggle she would soon achieve her dreams and that they would be so much more meaningful and loving, given her long journey.  I also know that we meer mortals are finite and small of body compared to the vastness of the universe.  Yet, we are far from alone. I am twice Diem's age, but in a very brief two hours in a restaurant in Manhattan she taught me more about living life in the moment, not day-by-day, but minute-by-minute, than I had known or so clearly understood in over sixty years.  Not for one second do I dare think that her journey of teaching and caring for others may soon be over.   I want that miracle.  I pray for it as do so many others.   I'm also mindful, however, that my wishes, expressed in fervent prayer, may in part be expressions of my selfishness.  I want Diem in my life, today, tomorrow and for many years to come.  But, I know that I'm not in charge and I can't allow my frustration to turn to desolation or anger.  That is why I've encouraged all those who value Diem to pray that God's will be done--whatever that may be.          "You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!" [Psalm 139:16]

Thank you, V1man, for those wonderful words.  I could not have said it better.  The conversation right now is between Diem and God.  May God protect  her and keep her, may the angels watch over her.  She is in my heart and prayers today and always.
Life is just not fair. I'm Praying for Diem, i hope she beats this again, she is a very strong person. She deserves to live.
Just a reminder of the gift that Diem Brown is to the cancer community and the world at large:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fGJsySQdqM&feature=youtu.be

Noooooooooooooooo! Please remember to say a prayer for her family and loved ones. This is crushing for all who loved her! God has moved his angel from earth to heaven. Go in peace sweet Diem!
Just saw. Sick to my stomach. RIP
Devastating. Life is short, and may she serve as an inspiration to each of us to never take that for granted, to savor each moment, and even in the face of darkness, never give up hope. She was a warrior who leaves behind a legacy that will never be forgotten.
I'm shaking. Like OMG. I'm heartbroken right now! 
Diem is a true inspiration to so many.  The way she fought, the way she inspired people, the way she lived her life .... Very very sad.  I hope her family, friends, and fans can find peace in the amazing memories of her.    
I'm shaking. Like OMG. I'm heartbroken right now! 
  Me too!!  I am at work and really trying to keep it together.

I had a lot to today and that is now ruined after hearing about this. 
RIP Diem.  I've been prepared for this since the moment I read the cancer reached her stomach but it was still shocking to read even though it was expected.  She's an inspiration to many.  My thoughts are with her friendsand her family.  Diem may have had a relatively short life but she accomplished a lot and did countless things many can only dream of doing.  Lots of positives to remember.
