So nostalgic. Beth Chapman shared a throwback photo of herself with her husband Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman on Instagram, not long after getting a devastating cancer diagnosis. “2002 look at this oldie on the hunt for Andrew Luster,” Beth wrote. “We were so young And he is so hot…. vavavoom!” Well, at least she hasn’t lost her sense of humor!
The Dog the Bounty Hunter star was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday, Nov. 27, for emergency surgery, but is home now. On Dec. 1, her husband exclusively told In Touch, “She’s much more comfortable now she can breathe, but she just wanted to come back to Colorado, she loves it here. They told us they didn’t want her to leave the hospital, but she was adamant, she just wanted to be home.”
On Nov. 28, after having emergency throat surgery, Beth received the news that her cancer is back. Previously, she had been cancer free for over a year, but she only had a 50/50 shot at beating the stage 2 throat cancer the first time, so this new diagnosis may be an uphill battle for the Bounty Hunter star. This time around, the “life-threatening blockage” in her throat was twice as big as a blockage she had in the past, and what’s worse, the cancer may have spread to her lungs now. Beth underwent a biopsy, and she and Dog are currently awaiting the results of those tests.
It makes sense that in the wake of these new health struggles, and after many years together — Dog and Beth recently celebrated their 12-year wedding anniversary — that Beth may be feeling a little nostalgic and reflecting on the life they’ve shared together. Cancer is a really scary diagnosis and is bound to make anyone do some soul-searching.
In the comments on the post, Beth had a ton of well-wishes from fans and followers. “I’m praying for you and the whole family,” one person wrote. Another added, “Stay strong,” and there were plenty of “you got this” and “we support you” sentiments strewn throughout the replies. And we couldn’t agree more.
