Beth Chapman Refuses to Undergo Chemotherapy
The “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star opened up about her thoughts on the recurrence of her cancer and the procedure of chemotherapy.
While delivering a speech as a guest speaker at The Source Church in Bradenton, Florida, Beth Chapman, 51, explained the reason behind avoiding chemotherapy this time around.
After being invited up on the stage by her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, Beth gave a detailed talk, in which she also talked about the painful experience of chemotherapy.
When she was treated for throat cancer back in 2017, Beth had a painful chemotherapy session. So after being diagnosed with cancer once again last year, she opted to rather go for non-traditional treatments.
"Chemotherapy is not my bag people. That is not for me. For me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it’ll either be taught to you or to me," Beth explained.
Earlier in January this year, ET Online reported that the reality star was undergoing chemotherapy for her throat cancer.
However, the media outlet had quoted a source as confirming that the chemotherapy sessions “certainly take their toll on Beth.”
Although the return of Beth’s cancer is a huge tragedy for the family, Beth has chosen to view this as “the ultimate test of faith.”
“I don’t go to God and go, ‘Why did I get cancer?’ ” she said. “He’ll roll his eyes at me again because I know why — because this is the ultimate test of faith. It is the evidence of things hoped for and it is the substance of things not known,” Beth told her audience of churchgoers.
Beth was first diagnosed with stage II throat cancer back in 2017. Her battle with the disease was filmed for A&E Special, “Dog Beth: Fight Of Their Lives.”
Despite the return of her cancer, Beth does not look like settling down anytime soon as she is all set to star in yet another show, “Dog’s Most Wanted,” alongside her husband.
