Ami was diagnosed with phase III of non-small cell lung cancer in 2017. She told people in August of that year about the beginning of her problems. She felt pain in her libs, felt nauseous for days, so much so that walking from a small distance gave her itches.
Moreover, there were days when she went to bed. But it wasn’t until December 2016, when she went to the dentist, that she learned about the problem. And that’s where it all started.
In the same interview, Billy Brown shared his wife’s strength. He said that Ami is the one who takes the burden and takes care of everything else. But at this point she is really helpless. Billy Brown continued that this is the time for the family to repay Ami. Ami Brown’s daughter Rain Brown told about the shock she felt after she discovered the news.
