Beth Chapman has been hospitalized in Hawaii.
The wife of Dog “the Bounty Hunter” Chapman, who is a veteran of reality television herself, reportedly has trouble breathing, according to Us Weekly.
This tabloid broke the troubling story and quoted an insider who says of Chapman:
“Beth Chapman has been rushed to a Hawaii hospital with serious breathing issues. 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.”
That's for certain.
Anyone who has followed Beth over the past couple years is well aware of her grit and determination.
The 51-year old underwent emergency surgery on her throat on November 27, 2018 after discovering the devastating news that her cancer had returned after she had seemingly overcome the illness.
Since that time, she had been receiving chemotherapy treatments in Los Angeles, keeping fans and social media followers apprised of her journey throughout.
In an emotional interview with DailyMailTV just over a week ago, Duane explained how the love of his life is preparing to die.
She has every intention of making the most of every single second she has remaining.
"She has told me repeatedly that if these are her last days on earth she wants to spend every moment with me," he said in late March.
Duane went on to say that Beth wants to spend her time "living life to the fullest, enjoying the time we have left together."
What an admirable attitude, right?
Beth was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017.
It returned last fall, with Beth confirming the sad development as follows;
“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 and surgery before the disease progresses."
Earlier this week, Dog posted a photo of his wife decked out in black and sitting in a car as she poked out her tongue for the camera.
“Property of DOG,” he captioned the cheeky Instagram snapshot.
Here's a look at that recent image:
Back in December, Dog also spoke to Us Weekly about his wife, her diagnosis and the future as he saw it.
Or hoped to see it, at least.
“I don’t listen to the bad news. I don’t want to hear it. … I pray a lot, anywhere. I cry all the time,” he said, concluding back then:
“I’m a sinner. I pray a lot. I have done double that. I constantly ask God to heal my honey and make sure He takes care of it. I’ve been telling Him that I’m going to try and quit smoking and cursing.
"I’m a dealmaker, and I’ll do anything.”
We will keep the Chapmans in our thoughts and hope you do the same.
