Beth Chapman’s daughter has recently updated fans on her mother’s condition, after it was released yesterday that she was in a medically induced coma.
Bonnie Chapman posted last night to her Instagram story, which included an image of hospital equipment.
She wrote, “There’s not much of an update I can give, I can say she’s getting good care. I know you guys wanted more, but y’know it’s a coma, much [sic] can be updated.”
The reality TV star, Beth Chapman, was placed in a medically induced coma, according to yesterday’s confirmation by her husband Duane ‘Dog’.
The couple is famous “Dog the Bounty Hunter”, the TV series that they both appear in together.
For the past several years, the 51-year-old has been battling cancer, and on Saturday, was admitted to the ICU at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.
According to Hawaii News Now, the family issued a statement, with husband Duane saying that they “humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth” and sent “sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth’s battle with cancer.”
Back in September 2017, Beth was first diagnosed with throat cancer but later that year received the all clear. Unfortunately, it later came back and had spread to her lungs.
Beth was taken to the hospital in April following “serious breathing issues,” as well as fluid in the lungs.
After Beth first received her cancer diagnosis, she and Duane made a TV program called “Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives,” which featured Beth undergoing a 13-hour operation to remove her Stage 2 tumor. At the end of last year, Beth’s cancer was confirmed to be “incurable.”
Despite Beth’s bleak diagnosis, both she and Duane made the recent announcement of a new show, “Dog’s Most Wanted.”
In a video promotion for the upcoming show, Duane says, “My wife, the love of my life, is fighting for her life, and instead of being at home helping her, I’m out here looking for you. So I’m warning you in advance: may God have mercy on you when I catch you. Because I won’t.”
Beth then adds, “You’ve been warned.”
Throughout her illness, Beth has remained strong and defiant. In fact, just a week ago, she posted a picture of herself on Instagram which featured the hastag, #CancerWillNotBeatMe.
She has been in the bail bond business for over 30 years, so it comes as no surprise that she’s showing herself to be a tough cookie. We wish her all the positive energy for a healthy recovery.
