Earlier this month, we reported that Dog The Bounty Hunter’s wife Beth Chapman’s throat cancer had returned. Now, a tragic update has come in that has her fans praying for her even more.
Daily Mail reported that Dog, also known as Duane Chapman, has just revealed that Beth’s cancer is “incurable.” He added that despite this diagnosis, Beth will fight “every step of the way.”
“I have to keep faith, I am the leader of the family,” said Dog, 65. “She thinks she is, but I am. I have to keep it where I don’t have any doubts and keep everything positive. I love my honey so much, I don’t know what I’m gonna do.”
Dog admitted Beth’s illness has been very hard on him as well, confessing, “I cry all the time.”
“I think I’m in a bad dream and I need to wake up,” Dog said. “People keep saying to me, ‘Dog, are you OK?’ But I’m not the one who’s sick. I am going to be right here with her.”
Beth already beat cancer once
Beth successfully battled her throat cancer into remission after she was diagnosed last year. Unfortunately, doctors discovered it returned a few weeks ago after she was rushed to the hospital with a blockage in her throat.
“Half of her lung was full of water,” Dog explained.
Dog and Beth, 51, have been utterly devoted to each other ever since they met in 1988. They began dating in the mid-1990s and got married in 2006. When asked about Beth’s health right after her diagnosis, Dog indicated that the situation was not going well.
“Listen I appreciate the question and please say a prayer, she’s not doing good,” he said.
Last week, it was revealed that Beth had decided to leave the hospital against her doctor’s wishes and return to her home in Colorado. She has continued to be active on Instagram, most recently posting a photo of her son on Monday.
Beth is far too young to be going through something like this and it’s incredibly tragic for her entire family. Please send prayers Beth’s way to help give her the strength to beat cancer for a second time!
