Joshua Bam Bam brown took to social media to share a recent family picture. His girlfriend, Allison Kagan, is also in the photo, as well as Noah's fiance, Rhain Alisha.

Gabe was missing

The "Alaskan Bush People" fans commented that it was a lovely photo, but they were also quick to notice that Gabe was missing. Bam Bam simply captioned the photo "Family," but did not note why it is missing one member.

Ami Brown, who is suffering from a late-stage lung cancer, is at the center of the photo, looking thin and frail but with a smile on her face.

Update on Ami's condition

In the most recent episode of "Alaskan Bush People," the family learns of the treatment plan for her stage 3B lung cancer. They asked the help of executive producer Sheila McCormack to help interpret the cancer treatment plan.

According to McCormack, Ami will undergo radiation treatment five days a week for six weeks. After that, they will put an IV on her and she will undergo chemotherapy for four hours once a week. She also explained that Ami now weighs just 94 pounds, and if she loses five more pounds, the doctors would have to put her on a feeding tube of some sort.

Bam Bam weighs in, saying that because it is happening to their mom, the cancer thing is the most difficult challenge they have gone through. He said that it does not compare to a house burning down or a boat sinking or needing stitches. He added, "This is really difficult. I don’t even know what to say."

Billy added that Ami is in a great deal of pain, and he told McCormack he just wanted to stop her from feeling any pain before asking a minute off the camera.

Facebook page ABP Exposed recently reported that Ami Brown is still at the UCLA Medical Center. She is still receiving treatment there, which could go on for the next months or so. Her family remains by her side in Lower 48, although there were reports that the Browns are looking to settle in Colorado.

Farewell, Browntown

The family decided it would be best to leave the bush while Ami is receiving treatment, so they would be near medical facilities. Bear, Bird and Snow returned to Browntown in last Wednesday's episode of "Alaskan Bush People." They were left to the grueling task of shutting down Browntown on their own after Matt Brown sustained a head injury because of an explosion when he tinkered a bear deterrent.

Matt was immediately brought to a hospital in Hoonah, received nine stitches in the head, and was admitted to intensive care unit.
