What does it mean? Beth Chapman shared a cryptic message to her Instagram account on May 20 that has many people wondering whether it’s related to her ongoing cancer battle. She posted an image that read, “Watching someone you love die is an image you never forget,” and didn’t include a caption.
In September 2017, Beth and her husband, Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman, revealed that Beth had been diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer. On their show, Dog’s Most Wanted, her doctors gave her a 50/50 shot at beating it, and she was cleared a few months later. But sadly, in November 2018, Beth learned that her cancer was back after undergoing emergency throat surgery. The next month, she started chemotherapy.
Since her fans are well aware of Beth’s brave battle, many of the comments on her Instagram post asked about her health and well-being. “Guys Beth need prayer warriors out there!” one person wrote. Another fan responded, “But watching someone fight … fight like never before, gives strength to the ones who have lost their will to fight … You fight Beth … you give all of us the determination to FIGHT!!!!” A different person replied, “I’ve been there. I’m so sorry that you and your family are going through this🙏.” Actually, a lot of fans brought up that the experience Beth alluded to was something they had dealt with, and urged her to stay strong.
As recently as May 14, Beth seemed in good spirits in the midst of her struggle with cancer. She shared a photo posing alongside her husband’s son Leland and she gushed about what an amazing time they had for Mother’s Day. “This guy had [me] laughing all weekend what a joy to be around thank you god for blessing me with such a kind young man #mothersday @lelandbchapman thank you for coming …💕” she wrote at the time. Here’s hoping Beth is still laughing, and her Instagram post was just a moment of reflection and not a nod toward something serious going on in her life.
