2018 have been rough on the stars of the hit show ‘Alaskan Bush People’ after various family members ended up in hospital.


Where their health is concerned the Brown family have been through a lot. Matriarch mom Ami got diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2017 and faced a grim prognosis as Billy Brown commented:

“She tries to hide it from everybody but four or five times a day she bends over like a baby and cries. At one point, she was given only a three percent chance of survival.”


Ami received 12 weeks of intense radiation and chemotherapy, so when the doctor called the family in for an appointment their expectations were low. The doctor pronounced her ‘cancer free’ and they were stunned and delighted.

The family matriarch then spent some time in their Washington home regaining her strength.


Son, Matt has also been dealing with his issues of alcoholism, having first entered treatment in 2016, but made an announcement in September 2018 that he would be returning to Washington for further treatment and said:

“I struggle with substance abuse, and after a year of ups and downs, I decided to return to treatment. I’m really grateful for everyone’s support and hope to have my life back on track soon.”

Last week Billy Brown got admitted to hospital after coughing a lot recently and feeling ill. They treated the 65-year-old Billy for an upper respiratory infection but is now at their Washington home focusing on his health.


There was cause for celebration as well amidst the family’s health-related setbacks as Noah Brown and fiancée, Rhain got married on August 15, 2018, during an intimate ceremony held in Idaho attended by 25 close family and friends.

Their reception catered by Famous Willie’s BBQ, Stacy’s Cakes made the wedding cake and desserts.

Noah. 26, proposed to Rhain, 27, at sunset in Alaska on April 17, 2017. They look forward to starting their new life together as husband and wife and building memories of their own.
