Reports stated that the cancer had “spread to her lungs” and that doctors had deemed it “incurable.” Speaking to the press, the "Dog the Bounty hunter" star revealed, “I pray a lot, anywhere. I cry all the time. I'm a sinner. I pray a lot. I have done double that.”

He added:

“I constantly ask God to heal my honey and make sure HE takes care of it. I've been telling Him that I'm going to try and quit smoking and cursing. I'm a dealmaker, and I'll do anything.”

Two years ago, Beth went into surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in her throat. Speaking about her initial cancer diagnosis she said at the time:

"I've stared down the devil more than once in my life but I've never faced a real life or death decision. My life has never been easy, and I surely don't expect it to start now. Still, I've never been a victim and I won't let cancer beat me."
