A heartbreaking moment when Duane held Beth's hand after her throat surgery as she cried.


Beth Chapman, Dog The Bounty Hunter’s wife thought she had gone into full remission after the removal of a throat tumor during a 13-hour surgery last year. 


According to RadarOnline, a trip to the emergency room on November 26 followed after she started to feel sick, results showed evidence of devastating news. The throat cancer returned.

Emergency surgery at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for the removal of a tumor got scheduled for the following day on November 27. Doctors discovered a massive lump in her throat twice the size of the previously removed tumor last year.

Yesterday, on November 28 Beth underwent a biopsy to see whether cancer has spread, and are anxiously awaiting the results. RadarOnline also said that the doctors initially found the tumor when they removed a blockage in Beth’s throat and discovered the throat cancer returned. After the surgery, husband Duane gave a short update on her progress and said:

“They cut a hole in her throat so she can breathe. She can still talk, so she’s doing the best she can and remains incredibly strong.”


After Beth’s first cancer diagnosis in 2017 she told her friends about it through a letter in which she wrote in September 2017:

“I’ve spent a lifetime facing tests and challenges I didn’t see coming and certainly never expected. I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost 50 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.'”


Grateful news came to all in November 2017, when the couple announced that Beth was cancer-free. However, a source revealed that Beth had not been feeling herself the last few months and said:

“Beth had not been feeling well for a number of months and finally decided to get checked out. She needed to see her specialist, who is based in Los Angeles. Thankfully, she did when she did. It could have been dramatically worse if she never had that appointment.”


Now, time ticks slowly until the return of the biopsy results show if cancer has spread to her lungs.

Most of the time when we get the flu or a backache or a tummy ache, the thought won't readily come to mind that it may be cancer. 43-year-old Shaun Walsh certainly didn’t.


Shaun works as an industrial cladder with frequent exposure to heat in his line of work, so when he started to feel under the weather, he attributed his symptoms to working outside.

It was only when he started looking yellowish, and his urine became discolored that the saw the need to see a doctor. All the more reason to be shocked at finding out he had the fastest killing cancer in the country, pancreatic cancer.

Now Shaun’s prognosis looks good as all the cancerous tissue is said to be removed from his body at the Royal Liverpool hospital.
