According to a source, Beth was recently hospitalized in Hawaii following breathing complications due to cancer.
Beth was diagnosed with throat cancer back in 2017. After the diagnosis, she underwent treatment with a 13-hour long surgery to remove the tumor in her neck. Unfortunately, her cancer returned towards the end of 2018.
However, cancer has not stopped Beth and her husband Duane Chapman from living their life to the fullest.
Duane shared how they have been seeking alternative treatment aside from chemotherapy for Beth. Meanwhile, the family is engaged with the filming of “Dog’s Most Wanted Show” despite everything.
“Beth is there, my son Leland is there, we’re all together a team the family out there, we don’t think about nothin' but that,” Duane said.
He further shared how he wants to spendthe rest of Beth’s life by savoring every moment they have left together.
Beth’s journey to recovery is an inspiration to those who are fighting a life-threatening disease like cancer. We hope she finds the strength to keep going.
