In an all-new episode of Alaskan Bush People, Ami Brown learns the horrifying truth about the treatment plan required in her battle with advanced lung cancer!
After meeting with her Oncologist in Los Angeles, it was revealed that the 52-year-old matriarch was diagnosed with Stage 3B lung cancer. Treatment will require 12 weeks of intense chemotherapy and radiation.
Executive Producer Sheila McCormack shared with viewers, as well as several Brown family members, the shocking treatment that Ami must undergo in order to survive!
“The radiation is 5 days a week for 6 weeks. That’s the direct radiation, not the chemotherapy. After the radiation once a week she goes to another building and they put an IV in her and she gets chemotherapy for four hours,” McCormack revealed during last night's heartbreaking episode.
"She is 94 pounds. If she loses five more pounds they are going to put her on feeding tubes!"
While in shock, Ami's 32-year-old son, Bam Bam, speaks on behalf of the family.
"What’s going on now is the most difficult thing we’ve ever gone through. Because of who it’s happening to. Because it’s mom. Because of what it is. It makes the house burning down or the boat sinking or needing five stitches no big deal. This is real difficult and I don’t even know what to say," Bam Bam said.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, following Ami's shocking diagnosis, Ami's husband Billy Brown and their 9 children decided to leave their home in Alaska to be by her side as she gets treatment at UCLA Medical Center in L.A.
During last night's episode the family is seen packing up Browntown as they deal with the sad reality of Ami's health crisis.
