Paul stated that Diamond cared about his fans so much, and they were so important to him. This concern for his fans made him ignore the lump on his neck because he was afraid of the public's reaction and the attention it would get if he checked it.

Paul added that Diamond tried his best to remain positive while undergoing treatment by finding humor. Taking solace in his death, he said that Diamond did not suffer and did not have to lie submerged in pain.
