Ami Brown is so far from alone.
The Alaskan Bush People star is battling stage four lung cancer and the prognosis from doctors is grave.
But the mother of seven can at least take comfort in knowing she's surrounded by friends, family members, loved ones... and an endless array of fans.
With the Discovery Channel personality celebrating a birthday this week, supporters from all corners of the Internet have come together to send Ami their very best wishes.
"Happy birthday to the matriarch of the Brown family and the glue that holds them together!" reads the caption to the Facebook photo above.
It has been Liked over 28,000 times.
Wrote another user of the World Wide Web:
“Happy birthday Ami, a beautiful woman inside and out. We pray you have a very blessed day surrounded by your loved ones.
"Sending our love and prayers! Continue to look up, that’s where our hope comes from."
Brown recently spoke to People Magazine about her illness, telling the publication that "everything hurts" and adding:
“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.
"But I have the will to fight.”
It's this brave and strong attitude that has endeared Brown to so many viewers over the years.
“Happy Birthday Ami, Praying fo you to have GREAT results from your treatments," wrote another followers, adding that she can relate to Ami's pain:
"I am a two time cancer survivor and wish you ALL the Best, LOVE You and your Family and show."
And one more fan note:
"If prayers alone would heal cancer, you would be healed.
"You are a wonderful Mother, Wife and Role Model. You have raised a fine and loving family. You are a strong woman and have blessed our lives just by your inspiration.
"GOD Bless you and your family always."
Billy Brown also spoke to People this month about the state of his wife, saying he almost never leaves her side and marveling over the courage his wife has displayed.
"She’s the strongest person I know, so if she’s saying it hurts, it really hurts. She tries to hide it from everybody but four or five times a day she bends over like a baby and cries.
"She bends over and tears run down. She put out seven babies without a grunt. I’ve always had a lot of respect for Ami, but I’ve got a lot more now.
"She makes me feel like a wuss."
Based on her type of cancer, Brown has only been given a long-term survival rate of three percent.
As we said above, the outlook is grim.
However, as long as Ami is alive and fighting, we'll maintain hope.
We join these fans in sending birthday wishes to the reality star and we hope we can do the same next year at this time.
Hang in there, Ami.
