A lot of us grew up watching Dog the Bounty Hunter along with his wife Beth Chapman. Recently it was announced that his wife has been diagnosed with stage II throat cancer, US Weekly can confirm. She’s been married to Duane “Dog” Chapman for 11 years.
Beth wrote a letter to friends, writing “As most of you know I’ve spent a lifetime facing tests and challenges I didn’t see coming and certainly never expected. I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years…”
She continued, writing “…but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer.’” The 49-year-old was completely heartbroken along with her friends and family.
Beth added, “After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of stage II throat cancer.”
“I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment…”
The star noted that doctors want to work on this immediately before the cancer progresses. But Chapman continues to have a positive attitude.
She writes, “To be certain I’ve stared down the devil more than once in my life but never faced a real life or death decision”.
The star also added, “My life has never been easy, and I surely don’t expect it to start now. Still, I’ve never been a victim and I won’t let cancer beat me.”
“I realize the road I am about to travel will be rocky, full of unexpected twists and turns. But I know one thing for sure. A bend in the road is not the end of the road.”
Her attitude is truly inspirational for anyone who is going through difficulties in their life. The A&E star is looking to the family for support.
She wrote, “I will fight every step of the way. My husband and children are counting on me to be there for years to come”.
