Brown, who is now 32 years old, first had a battle with ovarian cancer in 2003 when she was just 23 years old. She sadly suffered a recurrence in 2012. Most recently Brown was diagnosed with colon cancer. Brown says this time around has been the most traumatic for her mentally, physically and emotionally. She has been searching for some light at the end of this difficult journey.

Brown was filming in Panama for the upcoming season for "The Challenge" when she collapsed on set according to a report
by Pop Crush. She was quickly airlifted and rushed to New York City where she underwent two emergency surgeries. Brown was diagnosed with colon cancer and had a mass removed.

Brown is a courageous young woman who will hopefully win another in her series of battles with cancer. Her bright smile and upbeat attitude about her fight against cancer and life serves as an inspiration for other cancer survivors. When she beat ovarian cancer she said she was all smiles and felt so free. Prayers of family, friends and fans are certainly with her that she will beat cancer again.
