Beth Chapman, wife of Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman has been in a fight for her life since she was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer in 2017.
Fans of the criminal-catching pair have shown continuous support over the past two years, which has been appreciated by Dog Chapman and his wife.
“Thank you for your healing prayers and love for Beth during this difficult time,” Dog Chapman wrote on Facebook in 2017 shortly after the diagnosis was made public.
A tumor was removed from Beth’s throat, but in 2018 her cancer returned. The news was incredibly heartbreaking for the Chapman family. Even so, Beth remained strong and hopeful through it all.
“Another bend in the Road yet not the End of the Road,” she shared on Instagram last November. Her post included a photo of her in a hospital bed with her faithful husband by her side.
The iconic couple rose to fame from 2004 to 2012 during their eight intense seasons of A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter.”
It was during a 2006 episode that Beth and Duane tied the knot, CNN reported.
Dog may look intimidating, but when it came to the idea of losing his beloved wife, the TV star admitted he shed a few tears.
“My baby has cancer and she is fighting like hell,” Dog Chapman told the Daily Mail. “I have cried a lot over this because Beth is my everything. Despite all of the obstacles I have overcome, this is by far the biggest test of my life and mark my words, I will not let her die. She is my rock and my bodyguard. I will do everything I can to keep her here.”
Sadly, a statement reported by Hawaii News Now confirmed that Beth was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu on Saturday, June 22.
She is currently there in the ICU where she has been placed in a “medically-induced coma.”
