Hello, my name is Andrew Jara. I am trying to be a writer/director. I made a film named "Last Days" that i'm trying to bring some press to.

If you guys know me at all, you know I love the Challenge. I like the Challenge the way others like Football, I get really into it, follow my favorites and get sad when it’s not here. That’s why it makes me very sad to say, Diem Brown, a regular on the show has cancer again.
Diem Brown had very publicly been battling cancer on the show and would come in during remission. But she never used it to get ahead. She wanted to be taken seriously and without pity. It was actually very uplifting to watch, she wouldn’t let her disease control her.
Also she had an on again off again thing going with CT, another regular. One of my favorite parts of the series is during one episode, Diem and CT are in a pool. Diem had been wearing wigs up until that point but CT tells her to take it off. To be real, and it just makes her feel whole again. Like she didn’t have to hide. It was pretty great.
So it’s really sad to hear she’s struggling again. It hit me harder than I thought, mostly because I saw her as a success story and it feels like it’s still haunting her. I hope she gets better soon and I’m rooting for her.
