Beth Chapman Praises Sleeping Duane for Encouraging Her Nonstop Amid Cancer Battle
"Dog the Bounty Hunter" star Beth Chapman complimented her husband Duane “Dog” Chapman for empowering her consistently as she keeps on battling cancer.
The 51-year-old reality television star took to Instagram recently to share a snap of a shirtless Dog sleeping. The photo shows Dog propping toward a headboard as he laid down with his arms over his chest.
"Being with him is the most important thing to me. Ours is one of the greatest love story’s never told."
In the new post, Beth's caption was incredibly endearing as she complimented her affection.
"HE SLEEPS!" she wrote. "When he finally does sleep you can still see the worry and stress on his face, He has been by my side non stop since this happened strong and encouraging me every day! [sic]"
"There is no doubt we’re my strength comes from," she added. "Being with him is the most important thing to me.Ours is one of the greatest love story’s never told. [sic]"
Beth went on to say that their love was worth fighting for, suggesting she was going to continue battling cancer for their relationship.
The mother-of-four concluded her post by thanking Dog for his love and included a few hashtags about not surrendering.
Beth met Dog in 1988, while he was still married to his third wife. In 1995, the two finally got together after pursuing the acclaimed bounty hunter for a considerable length of time.
The couple's emotional start as lovers hit a shocking note when Dog's daughter, Barbara Katie Chapman, passed away in a car accident the night prior to their wedding on May 20, 2006.
Though Beth and Dog did their best to pick up the pieces following Barbara's passing, they encountered much more misery together, including a custody battle involving one of their grandchildren.
However, Beth's excruciating story took a life-threatening turn in September 2017 after she was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer. She had to undergo surgery to have the tumor removed from her neck.
Sadly, that wouldn't be the last obstacle she had to overcome. In November 2018, Beth was rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles for emergency surgery to clear a throat blockage that was obstructing her airways. The doctors then revealed that the cancer had returned.
For her second bout with cancer, Beth has decided not to pursue chemotherapy as a means for fighting her illness.
