While pregnancy was just a pleasant surprise for Snooki and Kristin Cavallari, ”Challenge” vet Diem Brown is holding onto the hope that having children is even possible. It’s likely that her second ovary will need to be removed soon as consequence to her ongoing battle with cancer, she told People, but, as expected, the “Exes” second-place finisher is not going to take the news lying down.
Diem told the magazine she plans to freeze her eggs before surgery so that motherhood might still be an option someday. “I know the risks I might be taking with hormone shots as a current ovarian cancer patient,” she said. “For me, something ‘normal’ is…knowing in my heart I have exhausted every fertility preservation option possible.” Diem also noted she’s one of the first current cancer patients to experiment with egg-freezing, but that she’s OK with being a case study so that women who face her plight in the future might benefit from it.
+ Please keep Diem in your thoughts, and leave her more love and encouragement in the comments.
