I can't find the words to describe how I feel about this. Rest in piece, babe. You're such a strong influence on many. You're an inspiration of strength and I don't think I'll, nay anyone, will forget you.
Rest in peace, Diem. Your strength, bravery, and courage will inspire me every day of my life. 
As fans, it's times like these that you truly realize the connection you have with the people on this show. It really stung when I heard the news.  Diem, you will be missed. #NeverForget #DiemInThePM
Rest in peace, beautiful warrior. I'm so saddened by this. She was so strong. I agree with Cara Maria, there is no losing. She faught and gave it all. Cancer is a beast, and i'm glad she was positive 'til the end. 
So heartbreaking Sad I can't believe it. definitely gives some inspiration to live life and appreciate every moment.  
I have changed the name of this thread to Remembering Diem out of respect for what Cara Maria said.   There is no "losing the fight" or "losing the battle" to cancer. Please dont ever think or say that. She has done nothing but WIN with her life. She is an angel put here for us to teach us lessons. Diem has inspired strength to those who felt weak. She has reached out a hand to those who felt alone. She created MEDGIFT and left a beautiful legacy through her passion for helping others. She has shown all of us how to come together in prayer and love. What she has left us is the biggest gift in the world. We are sad because this heart of life got taken away from us too soon.... But we should celebrate what she has done. Celebrate her life. Be thankful for what she has taught us through her struggles. Know that life and health are never guaranteed. Tell those close to you that you love them. Be thankful for all the little things. Diems life, struggles, and death all had a purpose. Take everything she has taught you and be a better person for it. Prayers to her family. Diem is truly dancing with the stars now. All my love. Thank you Diem for reaching out to a lonely weirdo for a thanksgiving meal all those years ago. You changed my life more than you could ever know. I will pass along your kindness in your honor. Love you. You are and always will be a Warrior.
You should post this on twitter and tell Peoplemagazine and other things that.
I'm Heartbroken, this just ruined my mood and day
She is the true champion of the Challenge. #warrior #inspiration

I can't even believe this.... I am so upset right now. I can't even imagine what her family is going through.... I don't even know what to do.... The sadness is so overwhelming Cray 2

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:   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]
Wise words from a wise man... I'm just not there. If she fights I'll have her back and steadfastly refuse to accept anything other than what she wants. I-m so happy I understand the words cognitively but this foolish heart can't comprehend the possibility.   I was driving last night and found myself in a strange area, not in my state and as I passed a church (not even my religion) saw that the lights were on and felt compelled to try the door… so I pulled in. The door was unlocked so went in & started to pray for Diem…and cry… after a little bit I pulled it together and just sat talking to God. I stayed about half an hour, thinking at any moment someone would come in and say hey crazy – you got to go but no, one person came peeped in the door I guess to see what I was up to but just went and left me alone talking.  She has inspired so many people, helped so many to face their own fears, to stand up for themselves, reaches out to help so many strangers – even if just to make them smile a bit – I have told her more than once that if I could figure out a way to pay my bills without my current job I would quit in heartbeat and be a fulltime volunteer for MedGift I believe it is that important. Having our little chats has come to mean so much, I can’t comprehend them being over… there are things we weren’t done with…  I don’t think I’ve totally lost my mind but one can never be sure I guess. Also, thank you so much for checking in on me you really are such a special person, it is no wonder she thinks so highly of you.
I love you!!! I am so sorry! I know how much this devastates you .. Cray 2

Rest in peace Diem. What an amazing person who graced this earth. Her beauty, spirit, and passion for life touched the lives of all those around her, including those her watched her for so many years on TV. She was truly a fighter and will be missed. Forever in the hearts of all those she touched.  Moving forward I hope to approach every situation with the same grace and dignity Diem had. Her positivity and compel to help others despite what she was dealt in life was truly like none other.  We love you Diem. A true superhero. Thank you for being you.
I'm in deep shock. I was prepared for this. Since the moment it was announced that the cancer was spreading, it was expected to happen. And still, I'm in shock and have no words right now. I still believed she would battle it once again. I agree wholeheartedly than you cannot put "Diem" and "losing" in a sentence together. She was, and is, a winner. She helped so many people, she inspired so many of us. She's not suffering anymore. She will be missed.
Just saw. Sick to my stomach. RIP
Me too./ I thought the trailer for Skeletons aND eXES 2 CAME OUT WHEN i SAW A HYPERLINK IN MYEMAIL. vERY SAD. fIRST MICHELLE, THEN FRANKIE AND nOW dIEM.

Thanks for posting that!
  this makes me so happy. rip diem i hope your dancing in heaven:)
My heart has been heavy all day. I truly can't even wrap my mind around the fact that Diem is gone. My prayers and condolences to her family. She was such an inspiration to many, including me. The grief I feel today is almost like I knew her personally. Her legacy of strength and passion for life will live on.
I got chills while reading the wishes from many of the MTV personalities and almost lost it in class Cray 2 Been watching her since the duel which was the origin of my love for the challenges RIP.
R.I.P. I have so much admiration for her. Even when doctors had given up, she was still positive and still fighting to live. Like Cara Maria said, there's no "losing" the battle. She was a soldier until the end. Will always be inspired by beautiful dancing Diem.

V1 clearly I hadn't been online or on my cell
I keep going to write  and then erasing because it's so hard to put into words. I don't think I've ever met somebody or known somebody who put up such a fight in anything they did as Diem did. On a personal note, I've watched all of the shows throughout the years and grew up as Diem grew up.  I interviewed her when I was over at speakreality and just always had a soft spot for her even when rooting for others because of how likeable she was. She had this vulnerability that made her so well liked and showed that she always had such good intentions.  It's so nice to see the fans and cast coming together to celebrate her life on and off the show.  I saw on twitter that Jonna referred to Diem as the challenge queen and I think thats a great description for her because of her battles on and off the show.  It was emotional hearing peoples stories and encounters with Diem since I felt like I knew her and truly felt like what you saw with her was what you got.  I'm thinking of her family, CT,  friends and fellow fans as she was so special to all.  I was especially heartbroken to read that Ashley Kelsey was en route to see her in the hospital when she received the news.    Of course, the next few days will be tough for all but I know Diem is smiling down on her family and friends guiding them through this process.  It has been an absolute honor and privledge to have Diem share her life with me all of these years.

Great post. You are lucky you got the honor of meeting such a great person. My heart hurts knowing that Ashley was going to see her when she heard the news. I know the became very close friends. I really hope her friends, family, and CT can get through this difficult time. 
I really hope her friends, family, and CT can get through this difficult time.
You know. I've always been an adamant CT hater. But honestly, he's been the one on my mind the most in this tragedy. I (and I'm sure many of us) know that pain and how difficult it is. My heart aches just thinking about him right now.
Rest in peace diem, you will be missed, her family and friends are in my prayers. I feel bad for ct, he lost his brother and now diem too, he is on my prayers too.
I absolutely love this quote by Diem which is something we should all live by when we're feeling down. "No matter what it is, you're going to have the bad days, but if you have hope throughout, you won, no matter what the results."
I'm heartbroken Sad RIP Diem, you will never be forgotten

Oh my God I'm so upset, RIP Diem she was a amazing person inside and out.
Wow... at a young age Diem has accomplished more than most people will in their lifetime. She was a warrior, a role model, a hero,  and now shes an angel. My thoughts go out to everyone affected by this tragic loss, especially to her family and friends.
