Earlier this week, it was announced that Beth Chapman’s throat cancer had returned after she battled it into remission last year. Now, her husband Duane Chapman, also known as Dog The Bounty Hunter, has broken his silence about his wife’s latest cancer battle.
Daily Mail reported that paparazzi spotted Duane leaving the restaurant Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday night. When they asked him how Beth was doing, he told them that she was “not doing good.”
“Listen I appreciate the question and please say a prayer, she’s not doing good,” he said as his oldest daughter Lyssa stood by his side.
“We really appreciate the prayers of our fans and we appreciate the support of our fans,” Lyssa said. “We’re all so devastated, we love our mommy so much. We got such an amazing outpour from our fans and we really appreciate it. Poor daddy.”
“Listen we love you guys too bro, aloha, say a prayer,” Duane continued.
Beth Chapman was first diagnosed with cancer last year
Beth was diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer last year, but it was in remission by the end of 2017. All seemed to be going well for her until this week when she was rushed to the hospital with a blockage to her throat. It was then that doctors realized the cancer had returned.
“Unfortunately, Beth’s cancer has come back. It’s serious and her doctors are evaluating her treatment options,” Chapman family attorney Andrew Brettler said in a statement.
Beth herself took to Instagram on Thursday to post a photo of herself in the hospital with Duane, along with the caption, “Another bend in the road yet not the end in the road.”

Beth is only 51 years old, so she still has so much life to live. It’s tragic when anyone has to battle cancer, but it is especially sad when someone so young is forced to fight such a serious illness. Please join us in saying a prayer for Beth during this difficult time.
