Doctors Break Silence on Ami Brown’s Cancer Battle, Including ‘Chemotherapy with Radiation’
Ami Brown’s doctors opened up about the brave battle with cancer that the “Alaskan Bush People” matriarch endured.
With just three percent chance of survival at one of time, Brown defied the odds to beat the life-threatening disease.
Her battle was exposed before the world in the form of televised episodes, and she faced plenty of criticism on the internet from people claiming that her diagnosis was faked for the television drama.
However, medical experts who worked on Brown’s recovery have now revealed the critical nature of her disease and her struggle.
Her doctors at UCLA Medical Center confirmed that in April 2017, Brown was first diagnosed with Stage III non-small cell lung cancer.
“Treatment for her cancer included a four-month course of chemotherapy with radiation. Her disease responded well to the treatment, and, according to her UCLA oncologist Dr. Deborah Wong, she is now in remission,” a statement from the doctors revealed.
The statement further read that Brown’s recent scans do not show evidence of cancer. However, she will be continuously monitored closely by the medical team for the next few months.
The source also informed that the family has left their rural Alaska home, and are currently living in their new ranch in Washington State to ensure that Brown can easily return for her routine checkups.
Brown’s husband Billy also told the source that the family is at a great place emotionally as they look forward to many more years of togetherness.

Following on the couple footsteps, their children are also looking for a joyous life ahead with their respective real-life partners.
Meanwhile, TV Over Mind reported that Brown initially believed her cancer to be a case of arthritis. She felt a strong pain in her back and believed it to be a result of exertion. When this was followed by shortness of breath, she assumed it to be a result of cold and old age.
Finally, it was her dentist who hinted that her problems may be much greater. During her visit to the dentist to get new teeth, the impression procedure suggested that she might have developed cancer.
