Birdie Brown gave a medical update on the season finale of Alaskan Bush People. The show’s fans saw how the 27-year-old woman was told she had two tumours and doctors had to remove them. She then had to make a life-changing decision after surgery.
When this season of Alaskan Bush People began, one of the biggest stories was Birdie Brown. She opened up early about not getting over her father Billy’s death. She desperately wanted to find something from him that would help her find direction in her life. Her mother Ami wrote her and Billy a letter. But she told Birdie she had to return to Alaska to open it. In the end, all this was secondary to what happened next. One day Birdie confessed to Rain that she had a stomach ache. She could barely walk and had refused to see a doctor about it. Later she said she didn’t want to get bad news and this caused her to avoid going to the doctor. It almost cost Birdie her life.
Birdie had two tumours that had to be surgically removed. This forced Noah to postpone her trip to Alaska to wait for her. When she came out of surgery, the doctor explained that they removed the tumors and there was no cancer.
Still, she had to make a decision. She could have a full hysterectomy and eliminate the possibility of cancer. However, that would mean she would never have children. While in Alaska, Birdie said she chose the possibility of children.
Alaskan Bush People: Birdie Brown Opens Up About Medical Condition Struggle
Birdie Brown went back to check the Alaskan Bush People’s final. Here, the doctor asked her what she had decided. Birdie said she wanted to have children one day and would risk cancer to fulfill that dream. She then told her mother and sister about her decision. Ami, who herself battled cancer, said they will follow God and whatever happens will come from him. Although the internet has mentioned freezing her eggs, Birdie wants to have children naturally. There is one problem. She also said in the episode that she’s in no hurry to meet anyone and hopes that one day she will stumble upon the perfect man. She also said that when her family tries to get her to meet a man, she shuts down and refuses.
Whatever happens, Birdie said she risks cancer and believes God will allow her to have children. Whether or not she will finally meet this special man and have children remains to be seen. But, she said, risking cancer to achieve that dream is worth it.
