Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife Beth Chapman is all smiles as she celebrates Palm Sunday amid throat cancer battle
Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife Beth Chapman recently decided to show off her bright and cheerful smile to the world, following her ongoing and lengthy battle with cancer. The 51-year-old took to Instagram on Sunday, where she shared a new post with a special message about Palm Sunday.
"#palmSunday #wgnamerica #palmtrees #Dogsmostwanted #palmsunday Don’t forget the reason for the season," she captioned the Instagram post on Sunday afternoon. Jamie Chapman, the wife of Beth's stepson Leland, commented on her post, "You look beautiful."
The cheerful social media picture showed a smiling Beth wearing a black low-cut top with a gold chain around her neck, and her blonde hair loose. Her photo came exactly a week after she was rushed to the hospital with breathing issues, as previously reported.
The mother-of-five was reportedly taken to a medical facility "with serious breathing issues." An inside source revealed, "She hasn’t been feeling well of late and Dog is by her side. One thing everyone knows about Beth is that she’s a fighter."
Beth started her chemotherapy sessions in Los Angeles in December 2018. She had earlier spoken about her stage II cancer diagnosis in September 2017 but announced that she was cancer-free a few months later. Unfortunately for the TV couple, Beth's throat cancer returned a year later which led to her having emergency surgery to remove a mass in her throat.
Beth has spoken about her relapse in the past, saying she wouldn't let it dampen her spirits. "I knew I couldn’t let it take me over," the reality TV stars said. "I had to keep moving, every day, moving forward. That’s all you can do when you get a diagnosis like this. So I take it each day at a time. And I’ll fight it with all that I have."
At the time of her throat cancer returning, a morose-looking Dog addressed the media by asking fans to "pray" for his ailing wife, with daughter Lyssa Chapman next to him, and said, "Please say a prayer. She’s not doing good."
Last month, he said, "'My baby has cancer and she is fighting like hell. I have cried a lot over this because Beth is my everything." The TV personality continued, "Despite all of the obstacles I have overcome, this is by far the biggest test of my life and mark my words, I will not let her die. She is my rock and my bodyguard. I will do everything I can to keep her here."
