Patriarch Billy Brown often presents himself as tough and invincible, so it was a bit nerve-wracking for his family when he had a health problem in October 2018. Representatives from Discovery, Alaskan Bush People’s home channel, confirmed in Country Living that an upper respiratory infection landed Billy Brown in the hospital.
The reality star’s son, Bear Brown, also confirmed the news in a deleted Instagram post since then, writing that his father was “in pretty bad shape.
Not only can it be difficult to deal with a health problem in front of the public, but Ami Brown was either fighting cancer or still recovering from her battle with cancer at the time of the accident.
We can’t say for sure, but we have a feeling that Billy Brown struggled to support Ami Brown as he faced her infection. “She doesn’t want to be a burden to anyone,” Billy said about his wife’s diagnosis, “according to People. “That’s not Ami. Ami has to carry the burden and take care of everything, but she has to admit to herself that she can’t be right now. It’s just time to give it back to her, that’s all we can do.”
Lucky for Billy Brown, he managed to get over the infection, and he seems to be doing better than ever.
