Alaska Bush People’s Billy Brown is risking his health after he decided to ignore the doctor’s orders and go and live on the mountain.
The 68-year-old has been in and out of the hospital in recent years and has been told by medical professionals that high altitude is not good for him.
The higher Billy Brown is from sea level, the harder it is for the patriarch of Alaska Bush People to breathe. After returning home from a particular hospital visit, Billy Brown told his large family that he has heart problems.
Because he had trouble breathing, he always assumed it was his lungs – but the diagnosis of his last emergency indicated that the problem was a serious problem with his heart. In heartbreaking scenes at the reality show,Billy Brown’s wife Ami Brown told their adult children that their father wouldn’t get better.
Billy Brown decided he would rather die on his Alaskan Bush People mountain than anywhere else.
However, the children decided to put their parents’ trailer down on the mountain – in an effort to help with Billy’s breathing problems.
Before the patriarch came home from the hospital, his children dragged the trailer down the frozen mountain path until it was in a lower place. However, all this happened before the last season of Alaska Bush People was broadcast.
Billy Brown was seen on the last Alaska Bush People season on the mountain with his family, but when the fire hit and reports indicated that they lost much of their ranch.
The Brown’s real estate empire in Washington – that’s more than 436 acres of land was destroyed as a result of the wildfire.
In an Instagram post, Bear revealed that the family suffered a “devastating loss” after losing their home. He noted a series of photographs of the forest fire: “A fire wiped through our mountain, our home! The [loss] seems to be great! It still burns! I will keep everyone informed! God bless you!”
