Beth Chapman of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” fame just opened up about her battle with Stage IV lung cancer as she continues to film her new reality television show “Dog’s Most Wanted.”
Beth, the 51-year-old wife of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” himself Duane Chapman, was diagnosed with cancer for the second time back in November, one year after she had beaten the disease. This time, doctors told Beth that her cancer was “incurable,” but she is still putting everything she has into beating it once and for all.
In a new interview this week, Beth credited her strong Christian faith and the love of her family for getting her through this fight.
“Fighting cancer is the toughest battle I’ve ever been in,” Beth said, according to Fox News. “But my faith in God and the love of my family is helping me through.”
Though she is fighting for her life, Beth has not let this stop her from also filming her new reality show for WGN. The show will feature her cancer battle as a storyline while also showing her continue to chase bad guys with her husband. On Tuesday, she took to Instagram to post a photo showing a lovely bouquet of flowers that her crew had surprised her with.
“So I came in the kitchen this afternoon to have our cast and crew lunch before we start shooting today and they brought me these most beautiful flowers!” Beth captioned the photo.

The way Beth is approaching her cancer battle should serve as an inspiration to us all. Many would have let this diagnosis break them, but not Beth. Instead, she is fighting this disease with everything she has while also not letting cancer destroy her positive attitude, her faith in God, and her love for those around her. Please keep Beth in your thoughts and prayers as she continues to battle this disease!
