The Real World/Road Rules Challenge contestant was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2006 weeks before joining MTV’s Fresh Meat. Since she opened up about her fight on the show, she became an advocate for others fighting the disease. It returned for a second time in 2012.

The reality star was diagnosed for a third time in September when she collapsed from stomach pains. She learned that the cancer was now in her stomach lining and colon. The People blogger underwent two surgeries, including a hysterectomy, and began her scheduled five rounds of chemotherapy treatment.
