Last month, Beth Chapman learned that her cancer was back and that it was incurable. She also found out that it had spread throughout her throat and lungs.
The reality star is currently receiving treatment but her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, shared that she refused to take prescription medication despite her diagnosis.
“She’s still trying to cook and get involved in my bounties and business. She’s still trying to do everything.”

“Beth is the kind of girl who likes control. She’s trying to still advise me on my work, and I’m like, ‘Honey, I was the Dog the Bounty Hunter before I met you. Stay out of it!'”
Even though she’s very ill, Duane shared that his wife wasn’t taking doctors orders. He said:
“Beth will not take anything the doctors want to give her. Even the doctor told me he doesn’t want her to have seizures if the pain is that bad, but she won’t do it.”
The reality star explained: “She takes over-the-counter pain meds. She will not take anything prescription.” Beth’s incurable cancer spread from her throat to her lungs.
Despite not taking prescription medication, Beth is still receiving treatment in Los Angeles. Her doctors have recommended that she have four to eight chemotherapy sessions.
In the meantime, “The Dog the Bounty Hunter” star is also exploring alternate therapy options. The Chapman family attorney Andrew Brettler confirmed that Beth was "very sick" and would "need to undergo chemotherapy."
On November 27, Beth was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after she reportedly experienced a blockage in her airways. Last September, the star was initially diagnosed with stage II throat cancer but she and her husband revealed two months later that she was cancer-free.
Duane has been struggling with his wife’s latest diagnosis but he’s determined to “keep everything positive.” He shared that he cried “all the time” and it felt like he was in a bad dream that he could wake up from.
The star has asked their fans to pray for Beth’s recovery.
