After two episodes of rehashed videos, "Alaskan Bush People" Season 7 finally aired new footages on last night's episode. Entitled "Weight of the Wolfpack," the episode updated fans on Ami's cancer battle.

The Brown family members discuss Ami's treatment options

"Alaskan Bush People" previously confirmed that Ami's Lung Cancer is at stage 3, possibly stage 4. Billy's clan has endured numerous challenges in the Alaskan wilderness, but this is definitely the toughest obstacle thrown in their way. The Brown family has left Browntown and temporarily relocated to California to be closer to Ami's hospital.

Last night, they were seen bracing themselves as they received important news regarding Ami's treatment options.

The show's executive producer relayed what the doctors have drawn up for Ami. She is advised to undergo radiation five days a week for a total of six weeks. After that, she will have to start her weekly four-hour chemotherapy session. The doctors were also concerned about Ami's rapidly decreasing weight. At 98 pounds, she is looking frailer than ever. They warned Billy that if she loses more pounds, they will have to put her on a feeding tube.

In a confessional, Billy said that he's aware of the difficult road ahead. However, he remained optimistic and hopeful that Ami would fight and overcome her sickness.

"All the things that we've overcome, all the obstacles that have been in front of us, taught us that whatever lies ahead, as long as we keep faith in family and God, we'll be alright," Billy said.

Stage 3 lung cancer prognosis

According to Healthline.com, most people with lung cancer have already reached stage 3 upon diagnosis.

By then, cancer cells may have spread to other nearby tissue and lymph nodes. Treatment options include surgery to remove the tumor, radiation, and chemotherapy. Statistics show that stage 3 lung cancer is treatable, depending on the patient's overall health and physical condition. The five-year survival rate is between five to 14 percent.

It is important to note that last night's "Alaskan Bush People" episode was filmed around two to three months ago. By now, Ami may have completed her radiation sessions and is in the middle of her chemotherapy. So far, the Brown family has not given a real-time update as to how Ami is responding to her treatment.

"Alaskan Bush People" Season 7 airs every Wednesday, 9 p.m. on Discovery Channel.
