The last half of 2017 was extremely challenging for Beth and Duane "Dog" Chapman, stars of the A&E reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter. The couple's faith was tested when they discovered that Beth had throat cancer, and needed to go through a lengthy and grueling treatment process.
Shortly after her diagnosis in September, Beth underwent a 12-hour surgery to remove the "plum-sized tumor" that was blocking her ability to breathe. Since Beth's diagnosis, the pair have been keeping their fans in the loop about her prognosis through social media and on their two-hour special Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives.
Although Beth admitted she didn't "see a lot of optimism" about her prognosis, she managed to beat the "50/50 chances" she was given, thanks to the aggressive treatment and the support of her husband.
"When we made a pledge many years ago I said I’d love her in sickness and in health until death do us part," Dog told People. "And that truth has really, really come alive in my mind. And I have to stand on that; I gave her an oath that I would love her forever. And thank God it’s not till death do us part at this point."
Beth had to undergo a series of tests to determine if the cancer was in remission, and in late November, Dog shared the good news with their family and fans of the show.
"Hello, attention. No cancer," he announced. "There is a God. This could be a miracle. This could be a healing."
Although Beth has been cancer-free for a few weeks now, life hasn't gone back to normal. The reality star is still going to rehab and the effects of the cancer are still visible on her body. She recently shared a photo on Instagram to show just how much her body has changed since the diagnosis.
