Repost from @janebondsurety It is the small things.... He indeed holds her heart in his hands. In the wee hours as we await the call of her emergence from the event, I am struck by many things. There isn’t much to do while you wait. Literally time feels like it’s standing still. So, you think. You watch. While many don’t understand the chaos and super cells this family weathers. I do. They are indeed the crazy glue that keeps each other together. They fight large and love even larger. I watch as the patriarch fields constant contact from the outside wanting any shred of news. He guards her. Fiercely. He is in his own private hell. You know this. You can see it in his eyes and hear his voice crack when he speaks of her. He guards her as she has guarded him so many times before. Unwaveringly and unconditionally. For many this larger than life family can be baffling. For those of us that see it on the daily, it’s easy to understand. Because at the core is an absolute love for one another and the family they have created. What the future holds for all is unknown. What I do know is that none of them will be alone. There is a blanket of peace and serenity knowing this. You see, it is indeed the small things. The gestures, the soft words spoken, being present, providing encouragement, being humble, saying silent prayers, a wink, a squeeze of the hand or uttering the word Chiricahua. All of it mattered. Every. Single. Thing. ❤️💔❤️.
She and her husband Duane “Dog” Chapman have been traveling to Los Angeles for the treatments. Beth has been spending most of her time at their family home in Colorado.
The insiders shared that the diagnosis remained serious but the good news was that Beth was responding well to the chemotherapy. She’s also said to be in good spirits.
Shortly after the emergency surgery which found the cancerous mass in Beth’s throat, Duane was interviewed in Los Angeles. He shared on the severity of his wife’s latest diagnosis and thanked fans for their support.

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.”

“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."
