Wife of 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' Beth Chapman received devastating news of her cancer returning
Beth Chapman was rushed to the hospital last night for emergency surgery. It is being reported that her throat cancer has returned.
Chapman, the wife to reality star Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter," complained of difficulty breathing last night according to TMZ. It followed an appearance the two made in West Hollywood where both seemed to doing well.
Chapman, 51, was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in September 2017. She immediately underwent surgery to remove it. The A&E documentary "Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives," covered the event.

In the early hours of Tuesday, November 27, Chapman was taken to Cedars-Senia Medical Center to remove a large mass that was blocking her throat.
The emergency surgery left Chapman under anesthesia for the last 30 minutes. When she came out, the media unveiled that Chapman's throat cancer was back.
However, doctors said it's "too early to give a prognosis" but definitely "serious." Dog, 65, remains by his wife's side and other family members are reportedly joining them soon.
The beloved pair has been together for over 30 years. At the time Chapman was diagnosed, Dog spoke to US Weekly about the devastating situation:
"She woke up once in the middle of the night and she’s like, ‘Honey, I’m gonna die.’ I said, ‘No, you’re not gonna die and I’m not gonna hear that.’ She goes, ‘Yes, I am. You’re so stupid, how are you gonna make it by yourself?’ It has brought us closer."
Back in April 2018, fans were delighted to see Chapman, deemed cancer-free, in a picture during Easter celebrations. The blonde beauty stood next to Dog in a white flowered dress.
Dog, wearing dark sunglasses, wore an orange checkered button-down shirt and black pants. Chapman also posted a playful photo of herself with an animal ears filter.
The two were apparently in Hawaii, where many of their family members live. They showed their love was stronger than ever with a final post from Chapman. In it was a bouquet of flowers she had received from Dog.
Online, the couple's fans are sending showers of well-wishes and support as Chapman once again faces the horrific illness.
