Ami Brown's Cancer in Remission: Report

by at .

We've all seen the Alaskan Bush People Season 8 trailer tease Ami's second chance, but we know that her battle with lung cancer is ongoing.

In fact, back in May, Ami Brown returned to the hospital. Sometimes, cancer comes back.

The good news, folks, is that it is once again in remission.

Ami Brown in Season 8

An insider reveals to RadarOnline that Ami Brown is in remission again.

"Ami is doing amazing," the source describes.

Considering that Ami beat the odds and became one of the 3% beat back lung cancer not once but twice, we'd say that "amazing" barely begins to cover it.

Ami is doing well, the insider says, "and she’s ready to show everyone that miracles do happen."

Last year, it was reported that Ami's cancer was cured in a Christmas miracle. That's not quite right, because it was early November and not really a cure, but it's good to think positively.

Ami is back with her family at their homestead in Washington, a 435 ace property that Billy Brown purchased -- to the outrage of some of the locals.

"Her doctors are all dumbfounded," the source says. "At how she was able to almost beat this."

Probably a combination of genetic factors, the fact that her family now has the resources to give her first-rate medical care in L.A. .... and, of course, her determination.

This is particularly impressive, the insider reports, "when she was in such a bad state last year."

There was a time about a year ago when most fans did not expect Ami to survive to Season 8.

"But she did," the source says of those doubts.

In fact, Ami and her cancer battle are expected to be a focus this season.

That and the family adjusting to their new home. And we imagine that Bear Brown's injury and subsequent hospitalization will also get some airtime.

But Ami is doing better, the insider reports, "and she is looking forward now to getting on with the rest of her life."

That is so wonderful!

Though, of course, she will continue to have to get regular check-ups several times a year to screen for the cancer's return.

Brown, Ami

"This whole experience has been a total wake up call for Ami," the source reveals.

Never take life or health for granted, folks. Also, maybe don't smoke or hang around a chronic smoker.

The insider says that this has been illuminating for Ami "and for everyone in the Brown family."

Of course. This is frightening but it can also be a learning experience.

The source reports that: "It has also made her and Billy closer."

You'd think that a couple who's been married for decades and raised approximately 1,000 children (okay, maybe "only" 7) couldn't possibly be closer than they are.

But people can be surprised by what draws them to connect or reconnect with their loved ones.

It is, of course, wonderful to hear that Ami is once again in remission.

But she's not out of the woods yet -- and we don't just say that because she literally lives in the wilderness. She is not free and clear just yet.

As we cautioned last time, cancer can return to rear its ugly head at any moment. She will need to remain vigilant.
