I remember the day I found out that my aunt had cancer. Although she was the most positive person I had ever met, I still worried about how she would handle such an overwhelming diagnosis.

Looking back, now that her cancer is in remission, she continues to be the most positive person I know. But even more than that, she is what I call an elegant spirit.

Cancer, in my aunt’s world, was a small valley hidden amongst the many glorious peaks of her life. While she may have had some moments of despair as we all do when we find ourselves alone in our thoughts, unable to see the light at the end of the tunnel, she never showed this to the world outside.

Diem Brown lost her long, extremely brave battle with cancer, PEOPLE reports. She was 32.

Diem first found fame on the MTV reality series “Real World/Road Rules Challenge” in 2006, and went on to compete in six more challenges.

In a statement, the network said: “MTV is tremendously sad to hear the news that Diem Brown has lost her long battle with cancer. We send our deepest condolences to her family and friends. Diem was a true fighter and brought passion to everything she touched. We will miss her.”

Think Twice Before Choosing Knee Replacement

For someone whose knee is sore and creaky, the prospect of replacing it with a new, metal-and-plastic version of the joint can be beguiling. The surgery seems so easy and to promise so much: better mobility, less pain, an approximation, almost, of youth. But there is growing evidence that knee-replacement surgery may be too seductive — and that many people considering the procedure would be better served to first try other ways to improve their knees.

There’s no doubt that knee replacements are increasingly popular. More than 600,000 such surgeries were performed in 2012, compared with about 250,000 just 15 years ago. But some new studies suggest that people may be electing to have the procedure prematurely and, perhaps worse, gaining limited benefit from it. According to figures from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the number of knee replacements in people between 45 and 64 soared by 205 percent between 2000 and 2012; among people 65 and older, the increase was only 95 percent.

Brittany Maynard’s Death: Why Is Brain Cancer So Lethal?

Brittany Maynard’s purposeful passing Saturday drove new dialogue on aid in dying, but her illness also reminded the world that science seems stuck in its bid to cure the most common type of brain cancer.

Maynard, 29 had glioblastoma, a fast-invading malignancy that, according to the National Brain Tumor Society, is “the most deadly, most prevalent form.” Even after surgery and chemotherapy, the tumor typically kills people in about 18 months, the group says.

 Then, on Sunday, Lauren Hill, 19, stirred cheers and tears by notching two baskets for her Ohio college despite playing with a brain tumor that doctors project could claim her in weeks. Like Maynard, Hill’s tumor is in the glioma family. Her cancer is on the brain stem, which controls breathing and pulse, leaving surgeons unable to remove it while no drug has been found to effectively treat it.

Eluding Ebola: Gear Matters, But Technique Matters More

New guidelines for the personal protective equipment that  wear have on when treating Ebola patients make clear that what you wear counts — but even more important is how you put it on and take it off.

And the guidelines that the World Health Organization updated Friday suggest only highly trained medical professionals should be taking on the dangerous job of caring for Ebola patients, say the country’s leading doctors at the National Institutes of Health.

 “Anybody could do this, but the training process is something that takes a lot of time,” Dr. Francis Collins, who heads the National Institutes of Health, told NBC News in an interview.

This 12-Year-Old Invented A Robot That Could Help End Malaria

David Cohen understands that mosquitoes aren’t just pesky annoyances — they’re global killers, too.

That’s why the 12-year-old from Dallas invented a robot that drowns the pests using a pump-jet system that traps them underwater using mesh. He submitted his work to the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge earlier this year and is one of the competition’s ten finalists.

The challenge, which is open for students who are in grades 5 through 8 at the time of submission, awards its winner $25,000, the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist,” and an all-expenses paid vacation. A victor will be decided after finalists present their work on Oct. 13 and 14 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

A New York City doctor who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive for the disease on Thursday.

Dr. Craig Spencer, 33, reported a fever of 100.3 degrees and gastrointestinal problems Thursday morning, both symptoms of Ebola. He was then transported to Bellevue Hospital in an ambulance staffed by a “specially trained HAZ TAC unit wearing Personal Protective Equipment,” according to a statement from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Tests conducted at the hospital revealed that he had the virus.

Spencer is the only case of Ebola in the city of more than 8 million. He is now the fourth person to be diagnosed in the U.S. with the viral disease.
