Ami Brown of Alaskan Bush People found out that she has stage 4 lung cancer at the beginning of the season and her entire family has been distraught over the news. Her husband and kids decided to close up their home in “the bush” so that they can be closer to the proper medical treatment for Mom Ami.
Unfortunately, Brown’s illness has progressed and now she is in a wheelchair. Hollywood Life reports Alaskan Bush People producer Sheila McCormack discussing the treatments that Brown is going through right now and she said:
The radiation is five days a week for six weeks. That’s the direct radiation, not the chemotherapy. After the radiation once a week she goes to another building and they put an IV in her and she gets chemotherapy for four hours.
Through all her treatments and trying to battle through the disease, Ami Brown has said on the show that her family worries, but has been a great support system. Brown said:
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.
Hollywood Life reports that the Brown family was staying southern California while Ami underwent treatment at the University of California Los Angeles, according to The Christian Post. Her oncologist, who has appeared on Alaskan Bush People, is Dr. Ann Raldow.
Unfortunately, the prognosis is not good and recently, a Facebook post from an Alaskan Bush People fan page stated that Ami Brown has cancer in both lungs and that her cancer is inoperable.
