Beth Chapman has been put into a medically-induced coma according to her husband, Duane “Dog” The Bounty Hunter. The reality TV star confirmed the news on his official Facebook page.
Although Duane’s message on social media was a terse one, “Please say your prayers for Beth right now,” he did link to an article that delineated his wife’s condition in greater detail.
For years, she worked alongside her husband, “Dog” as a bail bonds collector. Their show, Dog the Bounty Hunter, debuted in 2004 and went off the air in 2012, only to be rebooted recently on WGN America as Dog’s Most Wanted.
In September 2017, Beth received a Stage 2 throat cancer diagnosis and immediately underwent surgery.
The procedure was successful, but Beth’s cancer soon resurfaced and she went under the knife yet again to remove a tumor from her throat. In April of 2019, she was admitted into the hospital again after doctors found a buildup of fluid in her lungs. An emergency surgery was required to relieve the added pressure on her lungs.
