Last Wednesday's "Alaskan Bush People" Season 7 finale featured the Brown family's exciting road trip to Las Vegas. Billy Brown took his wife Ami on an adventure before she dives into her chemotherapy sessions. They were accompanied by their children Matt, Bear, Snowbird, and Rain.

The family, who spent most of their lives in the Alaskan wilderness, were obviously amazed by all the lights, buildings, and signages of Las Vegas. Snowbird exclaimed that she has never seen such a sight in her entire life.

Even Ami, despite looking thin and frail, seemed to be having the time of her life.

Unfortunately, the Brown family's RV's air conditioning broke down in the middle of their trip.

The temperature outside rose to 115 degrees, which was more than the "Alaskan Bush People" family can handle. Eventually, they decided to stop driving and stay at a hotel to rest.

Fans criticize Billy for putting Ami's health at risk

Many viewers were alarmed to see Ami being subjected to the intense heat and grueling travel, considering her advanced lung cancer. Fans took to social media to express their concern.

"Poor Ami. Here's a lady with advanced lung cancer and a compromised immune system. What better way to worsen it by going on the road in blistering heat?" one fan wrote on the "Alaskan Bush People" official Facebook page. Others chimed in and even called out Billy Brown for risking his sick wife's condition.

However, many fans also defended the family, as it was shown in the episode that it was Ami's decision to go on a road trip.

According to the "ABP" matriarch, this was her way of having fun amid her cancer battle. The family's supporters pointed out that it's important for a cancer patient to have a sense of normalcy, especially since treatments can be so exhausting.

Ami Brown's cancer update

In a heartbreaking interview with People Magazine, Ami opened up about her health. The 53-year-old reality star admitted that she's in a lot of pain [VIDEO], and revealed that her days are numbered.

Her lung cancer was initially diagnosed to be Stage 3B, but recent reports state that it has progressed to Stage 4. According to Billy, oncologists have told them that survival rate at this point is only 3 percent.

Despite the grim situation, Ami has not given up on life. She stated in her interview that she still has the "will to fight."

The "Alaskan Bush People" family have already left Browntown [VIDEO] and are set to relocate to a 40-acre ranch in Colorado. Meanwhile, Discover Channel has not confirmed whether the reality documentary will be picked up for another season.
