She’s so strong. Beth Chapman gave insight into how she’s doing ever since her cancer returned. “Fighting cancer is the toughest battle I’ve ever been in,” the 51-year-old revealed per radio station Q105. “But my faith in God and the love of my family is helping me through.”
The Dog’s Most Wanted star will discuss her cancer battle at The Source Church in Bradenton, Florida, on Sunday, May 12, during two Mother’s Day services. “I am so honored to have been asked by Pastors Ralph and Joanne to share my story with their congregation, especially on Mother’s Day,” she said.
Beth’s husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, re-posted the news on Facebook. “Save the date: my dear friend Beth Chapman and her husband, Dog, will be with us for Mother’s Day at The Source Church 9 and 11 a.m.!! She’ll be sharing some of her journey for the first time and bringing a message of hope, faith and especially honoring the amazing role of mothers. Hope you can make it!!” the message read.
In September 2017, the couple revealed that Beth had been diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer. On the show, her doctors gave her a 50/50 shot at beating it, but she was cleared a few months later. However, in November 2018, the blonde beauty discovered that her cancer was back after having emergency throat surgery. The following month, she started chemotherapy.
Of course, Dog couldn’t be more supportive throughout this tough time. “I am going to be right there with her,” Dog told In Touch exclusively in December 2018. “First thing when she woke up from the [latest] surgery, she said, ‘Where’s the Dog?’ and the nurse was confused, she said, ‘Did she bring her dog with her?’ and I said, ‘Yes, ma’am.’ I’m here every moment I can be for her.”
Earlier this month, Beth was rushed to the hospital after she was having trouble breathing. Luckily, the Colorado native was alright. “She is at home resting after being released from [the] hospital,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly at the time. “Doctors drained almost four liters of fluid from her lungs. Dog was by her side throughout the entire process. She is not in chemo contrary to reports.”
Nothing seems to be stopping Beth from living her life, though. “She’s still trying to get involved in my bounties and business,” he said. “She’s trying to still advise me on my work, and I’m like, ‘Honey, I was Dog the Bounty Hunter before I met you, stay out of it!’”
We love you, Beth!
