Amid reports Alaskan Bush People matriarch, Ami Brown, is just days away from succumbing to stage-four lung cancer, rumors are swirling that she'll be a "big part" of Season 8, according to RadarOnline. Multiple sources have confirmed that Billy Brown, 64, Ami, 54, and their children Matthew, 35, Joshua "Bam Bam," 33, Bear, 30, Gabe, 27, Noah, 24, Bird, 22, and Rain, 14, will all be returning to the hit Discovery show. In fact, they're reportedly almost done filming.
Currently, the reality star fam lives in a mansion in Beverly Hills — close to where Ami is receiving treatment. The $2.7 million mansion has it all, according to Radar Online: five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a master suite that has its own jacuzzi, and gorgeous marble floors. However, the best part is the crystal clear in-ground pool and hot tub in the backyard, surrounded by pretty trees and flowers. It's a far cry from the Alaskan wild, that's for sure! There's no word yet on where the season will take place, since they also have a home in Colorado.

As previously reported, Ami was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. In a recent interview with People, the reality TV matriarch opened up about why she is remaining optimistic even though she only has a three-percent chance of survival. "I realized early into this that it’s very easy to want to give up and just die. And on the pessimist side, it could be my last days," she said. "But I have the will to fight." She added, "Worrying about it only makes it worse. There is hope and that hope is having faith in God. You can’t give up. I tell people be happy. Just be happy. It’s a choice. Things can be hard and you just want to curl up but you have to shine." According to Rainy, her mom is nearing the end of her second round of chemo, so here's to hoping she's finally on the road to recovery!
