‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Reveals Her Mental Health Struggle In Emotional Post

The Brown family, best known for starring on Discovery’s reality show Alaskan Bush People, have had a trying few months.


During the premiere of the seventh season, the family revealed that Ami, the matriarch, was battling stage III lung cancer. The family, who lived in on an isolated island in rural Alaska, were forced to pack up and temporarily move to southern California so Ami can seek treatment.

A few weeks ago, “Alaskan Bush People Exposed,” a Facebook page with up-to-date insider information about the family, confirmed that Ami had completed a round of chemotherapy and “they are scheduled to start filming in a few weeks.” However, a more recent update revealed that the 53-year-old matriarch’s cancer has unfortunately progressed and she is scheduled to undergo a second round of chemo.

Ami’s daughter, Rain also confirmed the disheartening news through a post on Instagram.

“Sadly I can’t say how she is doing just yet, but we are all hopeful and faithful,” wrote Rain. “Thank you all so much for your support and love in this harsh time.”

The 14-year-old also opened up her secret mental health struggle in another Instagram post.
