No matter how fake Discovery Channel’s Alaska Bush People is still being accused of being, some things are impossible to fake. But when disease comes into play, the show can play a dangerous game. They often run into a line of viewers who think the show is a fake disease because of the drama.
In truth, Ami Brown of the Brown Family really had a lung cancer diagnosis in 2017. To be more precise, stage III was non-small cell lung cancer. Despite a survival rate of only 3% after a few years, it seemed that Brown could go into remission in the past year. Anyway, with the accusations of falsifying it was emotionally bleeding on all fronts.
Alaskan Bush People: Ami Brown Remained Positive in Her Fight Against Cancer
According to all the reports, she is still holding out after surgery to remove the cancer in her lung a few years ago. However, Billy Brown noticed how rough it was to see her go through the ordeal. Said Brown to Radar Online last year: “In November, when everything was over – she was supposed to be cured – and she fell dead for about 20 minutes. It was horrible. We sat there and watched her go down every day, and I didn’t know whether I would lose her or not. It was a hard ordeal of destiny, I’ll tell you that.”
The good news is that her last scans showed no signs of cancer after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. Doctors continue to keep an eye on her to make sure the cancer never comes back.
Yes, all this is more than a little sobering and gives a new look at the Browns after former fans hunted them down for faking Alaska Bush People. Billy Brown continues to stand up for the show as still having elements of truth beyond the evidence that they live in luxury recently.
There was even evidence that the family lived in a fancy L.A. mansion when Ami Brown went through her cancer treatments, according to Life and Style.
