"Dog The Bounty Hunter" star Beth Chapman will speak out for the first time since her cancer returned late last year during a special Mother's Day appearance in Florida.

Beth Chapman is set to appear alongside her husband, Duane "Dog" Chapman, on Sunday, May 12 at The Source Church in Bradenton, Florida. During their appearance, she is expected to discuss how her faith has helped her face the most challenging battle of her life.

The appearance will be the first time the reality TV star addresses the return of her illness. So far she has remained silent on the return of her cancer.


“Fighting cancer is the toughest battle I’ve ever been in,” Chapman said in a statement Friday. “But my faith in God and the love of my family is helping me through. I am so honored to have been asked by Pastors Ralph and Joanne to share my story with their congregation, especially on Mother’s Day.”

According to the Church, the Chapmans will appear at two services at the church on May 12. The first will begin at 9 a.m. ET and the second begins at 11 a.m. ET.


The services will also be live streamed to the Source Church's Facebook page. Chapman was first treated for throat cancer in November 2017.

At the end of an A&E special with the couple, she was declared cancer free. Unfortunately, in November 2018, she was hospitalized again for a throat blockage.


Doctors performed emergency surgery to remove the blockage. During the surgery, they discovered that her cancer had returned. They later determined that it was incurable.

Despite that diagnosis, Chapman has remained positive. She frequently shares new photos with her fans on Instagram.

She also joined her husband for a new reality show, "Dog's Most Wanted." The new series follows their exploits to track down criminals on Most Wanted lists.
