‘Alaskan Bush People’s’ Ami Brown’s Cancer Said To Have Progressed

Ami Brown cancer update

The Discovery Channel

Alaskan Bush People star Ami Brown has been diagnosed with lung cancer. According to Entertainment Weekly, her illness was revealed on a recent episode of the show, but has left fans wondering about her current condition. While it has been reported that the Brown matriarch is currently wheelchair bound, some recent rumors claim that Ami’s cancer is more advanced.

A Facebook page called “Alaskan Bush People Exposed” is known to post information about the Brown family, much of which is not shown on the popular Discovery Channel show. A recent post on the page showed the Brown family out and about, with Ami sitting in a wheelchair. Many fans asked for an update on Ami’s health, and a page admin responded, “now it’s stage 4 in both lungs and inoperable.”

If this is indeed the case, Ami Brown’s prognosis is grim. According to the Cancer Center, the chances of living for five years or longer with stage IV lung cancer is “less than 10 percent.” Research shows that patients who do not receive treatment for stage IV lung cancer only live about two to four months after diagnosis. Those who do receive treatment live six to 12 months.

Brown is currently receiving cancer treatment in Los Angeles.

“So the radiation is 5 days a week for 6 weeks. After the radiation, once a week she goes to the other building and they put an IV in her and she gets chemotherapy for four hours,” executive producer Sheila McCormack told the Brown family on an episode of Alaskan Bush People that aired last month, according to People Magazine.

“Bill and the kids are very loving and supportive. They’re all worried. I tell them, don’t worry. Please don’t worry. Be happy … keep the faith. Good or bad, it’s God’s will and we’ll walk that road. There’s a lot for the kids to experience. I want to be there. I want to hold their babies. I want to hear them laughing … I want to see their eyes wide with enthusiasm as they experience these new things,” Ami said when her diagnosis went public.

Alaskan Bush People airs Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on The Discovery Channel.

I’m a N.C. salt water girl. As I feel closer to God by the sea his as B t one’s feel same & better in the Bush.I do hope if Ami’s condition becomes close to death, the History Channel producers can take her to Brown town w/ all Hospice equipment, if (which it sounds very close to meeting The Lord) it looks close to meeting THE Lord, I hope & pray Production company & History Channel producers will provide money to take Ami back to the Bush for the remainder of her days. A Hospice nurse or volunteer Doctor as well as ALL medical equipment & med be paid to stay with Ami during dying days. What a gift to be in Brown Town surrounded by naturall forest & sea for her lay in a comfortable hospital bed, a husband Doctor & Hospice Nurse with ALL medical equipment & pain meds ( morphine IV drip keeping as much pain as possible for this angel) Production can certainly pay for a couple of weeks for these expenses so Ami can pass peacefully smelling salt water & wonderful forest aroma. With her diagnosis & stage near death, why keep this angel to die in a hospital rather than the Alaskan forest & near salt air.A hospital bed faced in a window view of she prefers & surrounded by her family
her ONLY WHEN GOD DETERMINES our time. Relatives that’ve passed wait for her. I beg & pray a group can come together & accomodate Ami’s lats days where she lives most.No better wish could be obtained&Brown family have more comfort & peace( a bit later) knowing Ami made it back to Brown town surrounded with great health care & family where she built her last wordly home. Please, anyone in the industry, come together for this gift to entire family will comfort 1 day give them peace knowing Mom passed among the forest & home she finally obtained off grid. ANYONE WITH TIES TO PRODUCTION LET her return to Brown Town L,with
LINKS TO HISTORY CHANNEL & PRODUCTION, pull strings for this most lovely place from departure. My dad is fighting the same metastic stage 4 lung cancer & despite “treatment” she went through neck for no reason. She could have foregone chemo, radiation side effects & kept comfortable with pain & anti anxiety meds for a bit longer as a stage 4 metastatic, END STAGE cancer, as my dad did w/ exact same diagnosis now.God Bless her soul & family & people, take on the project of getting Ami back to Brown Town surrounded by all she holds fear.Prayed for family & fat cat rich can afford 2 make this final move.If she passed on a boat on way home(you give her a chance) she may pass breathing salt air, lulled by the sounds of the water, much better than in a cold sterile hospital she didn’tlike. Stay Strong Brown’s.


Ami you can beat this I know I was stage 4B cancer and am cancer free. I was given a death sentence no surgery. I did not understand how bad I was until I was told you were Stage 5 by my oncologist. I said there is no stage 5, his reply was right there is none. Is my cure a miracle YES. My chemo oncologist said Praise the Lord. I was not a good Christian and far from perfect now. Why I do not know. I can tell u God stepped in. You do NOT recover from stage IV neck cancer that is inoperable without the God. I will pray. Does not matter who I am or who u Are, our past is our past. What God’s plan is for I do not know, but there is a better life. Lord hear my prayer, please reach you hand out to Ami Brown in this hour of need. Grant her the miracle of life, life her suffering. You alone can do this, you alone can stop the suffering if it be your will. Comfort Ami now, take away the pain, let her live to carry your word. I ask this in THE name of the FATHER, DINNER, AND HOLY SPIRIT.
