‘Scary’ Tumor Battle: ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Bird Brown, 28, Is Getting Help From Cancer Survivor Mom

“Alaskan Bush People” star Bird Brown has had quite a lot of ups and downs with her “scary” tumor battle. Thankfully, she says her faith and her family have gotten her through the journey.


The 28-year-old star of the Discovery Channel original series, whose full name is Amora Jean Snowbird Brown, according to InTouch Weekly, had surgery last year to remove borderline tumors from her ovaries. One even weighed an incredible 8 pounds.

But in a recent post to Instagram, she gave a shout-out to her lung cancer-surviving mother Ami Brown, her sister Rain Brown and her late father Billy Brown, who died of a seizure at age 68 in 2021, for their support during her health struggles.

“One year ago today I got my surgery to remove the [borderline] tumors,” she wrote on Instagram.

“It was a hard fight and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t scary but it’s a fight I didn’t do alone and I’m so thankful to everyone that was there for me specially my mom who was there every day and rain who never left my side and I know da would have been there and was looking down the whole time. And it’s a fight that isn’t over yet but One thing I know is with faith and family anything is possible.”

In response to the post, Ami Brown took the time to pen a heartwarming comment to show her love and support for her daughter.

“Baby girl, you were so very brave that day,” she wrote. “I wanted, to walk with you, to the operating room. It broke my heart seeing you wheeled away. Due, to Covid, I was unable, to accompany you, but know how very proud, of you that I was, and am, of you.

“May many years of good health fill your life! Blessings my sweet! I love you! More!”

What Type of Tumor Did the ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Have?
Bird Brown said she had borderline tumors removed. What does this mean?

Having a borderline ovarian tumor, according to The University of Chicago Medicine, means that the tumor is “not invasive but also not completely benign [noncancerous].” They are often referred to as “low malignant potential” tumors and some are more likely to spread than others.
