Duane ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Chapman has shared a sad update on the outlook of his wife’s cancer battle, confirming that doctors have now labeled it ‘incurable’.
Beth Chapman was initially diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017, but it went into remission. Sadly, her cancer returned, and this time it appears to have spread to her lungs.
Beth will now undergo four to eight grueling chemotherapy sessions, though the future looks bleak.
According to Duane Chapman himself, Beth has already begun the process of planning her own funeral.
“She’s like, ‘Here’s the casket I want, and here are the flowers,’” Chapman said. “I said, ‘Beth, don’t say that.’ And she said, ‘What? You don’t want me planning my funeral? Well, I’m going to,’ “And she’ll say, ‘You have to face the facts.’ But I don’t want to.”
Speaking openly on the idea of losing his partner of 30 years, Duane stated in an interview: “I have to keep faith, I am the leader of the family. She thinks she is, but I am. I have to keep it where I don’t have any doubts and keep everything positive. I love my honey so much, I don’t know what I’m gonna do.”
He also admitted to crying “all the time”, as he struggles with the idea that this isn’t simply a bad dream.
As for Beth, reports say she’s facing the fight in a pragmatic, logical way, though her family has been rocked by the latest update from doctors.
“I am going to be right here with her,” Duane said.
Now, more than ever, Beth Chapman needs our prayers and love.
