Ami Brown from Alaskan Bush People fame is still alive, and is said to be doing okay following a cancer battle that nearly ended her life.
As of October 2020, a report from Distractify confirmed that Brown was still in remission after she was diagnosed with lung cancer back in June 2017. At the time, her prognosis seemed grim, with a survival rate for her advanced stage of cancer sitting at 3 percent.
In 2018, Ami Brown announced that she was in remission.
“I have to go in every three months now for the rest of my life and be scanned to see if it’s back or not. It’s going to be a part of my life forever. But I want to encourage people to enjoy every moment and walk every moment with God because he knows what it’s about,” she said. “Never give up faith,” she told People Magazine at the time.
