Beth Chapman is being tested in the biggest battle of her life yet. Her husband, as always, is sticking to her side.


E! News reported an update from Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter." The former reality star said his wife received "a 50/50 chance of the chemotherapy working."

As anticipated, Beth's throat cancer has reached a stage where it must be addressed. The new diagnosis came in November, nearly a year after Beth was declared cancer-free.

The family matriarch was first diagnosed in September 2017. The following surgery worked. Now, the family is looking for "other treatments" in Boston, Houston and "possibly at MD Anderson."

Duane has described his wife's situation as her "preparing for the battle of her life." His wife continues to face the impending treatment with resiliency.


The family said:

"Beth is very strong, very health and very active. [She is] trying very hard to keep things as normal as possible for [the] children."

They added that they are "clinging to each other while they go through the search for a cure."


This comes after Duane referred to his wife's disease as "incurable." Regardless, the family is keeping hope alive.

Last week, Beth stepped out for a traditional theater and restaurant outing with her husband and kids. She posted a photo of herself and Duane.

She captioned it:

"Family Tradition. Theater with the kids for Christmas.. And Churchill's for dinner."


The comment section was quickly littered with words of support and adoration. Many praised Beth for how well she looked despite her incurable illness.

And last Friday, Beth went for a night party in celebration of her stepson's birthday. She joined stepson Leland Chapman and his wife and kids in watching a Christmas musical.

Still, husband Duane has reportedly returned to full-time bounty hunting so as to help cover Beth's medical bills.


Meanwhile, Beth posted a mysterious message on social media for "Dog the Bounty Hunter fans.

It read:

"#DogPound you guys are getting the greatest #Christmas present ever ...wait for it."

We hope that Beth is able to find a cure and be successful as she begins chemotherapy treatments. Her positive attitude is inspiring through all of this.
