"Dog The Bounty Hunter" Star Beth Chapman Shares Update About Her Cancer

Back in September, Beth Chapman, the badass star of A&E's Dog the Bounty Hunter wrote an open letter in which she revealed that she was diagnosed with stage two throat cancer.

“I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer," Beth wrote.


Beth was fighting a "nagging cough" for months, but did not consider that it could be a sign of something serious. It was during a routine checkup that the doctor found a tumor which required "immediate surgery" because it was blocking her breathing.

Just two weeks after the announcing the sad news, Beth underwent a serious 12-hour surgery to remove the "plum-sized tumor."

Now, almost two months after the surgery, the reality star and her husband, Duane "Dog" Chapman, are giving their supporters some updates on her condition.

Beth reassures fans that she will be fighting as hard as she can to beat the cancer, despite her fears.

"As I start this battle, I don’t see a lot of optimism," Beth said in an exclusive clip from their upcoming two-hour special on A&E. "They give me 50/50 chances."

Titled Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives, the special will follow the tough couple, who have been married for 16 years, as they enter the biggest fight of their life.

"My life has never been easy, and I surely don’t expect it to start now," Beth wrote in the letter following her diagnosis. "Still, I’ve never been a victim and I won’t let cancer beat me. I realize the road I am about to travel will be rocky, full of unexpected twists and turns. But I know one thing for sure. A bend in the road is not the end of the road."

Her husband agrees, adding, "Cancer picked on the wrong woman."

In addition to Beth's ailment, the family lost their beloved dog, Delilah, while they were in Los Angeles for the matriarch's procedure.

"My very precious baby died she just waited and waited but mommy never came," Chapman wrote. "Im [sic] sick with grief from the loss of my fur baby Delilah…you were a good ol road dog girl .. Ill love and miss you forever."
