Alaskan Bush People star Ami Brown revealed this week she was declared cancer-free after a grueling battle with advanced lung cancer. Now, in an interview with People, her husband, family patriarch Billy, has opened up on the toll the cancer took on Ami—and how it felt to hear the great news from her doctor. Billy revealed that Ami was close to death at one point. "Her heart just couldn't take it anymore," he told People. "She was just a few pounds [away] from dying."
