Beth Chapman, former reality TV star and wife of ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ announced today that she has been diagnosed with cancer.
“I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing,” she said. “My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses.”
Duane “Dog” Chapman, 64, confirmed the news on Facebook, adding: “Thank you for your healing prayers and love for Beth during this difficult time,” he wrote.
Beth wrote the following in a letter: “I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer,'” she wrote.
She continued, “After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of stage II throat cancer. I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses.”
I’ve stared down the devil more than once in my life but I’ve never faced a real life or death decision,” she said. “I’ve never been a victim and I won’t let cancer beat me.”
She is vowing to fight! Will you please support her and send your prayers?
“We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.”
