Beth Chapman, who revealed she had been diagnosed with stage II throat cancer last month, is trying to stay strong despite being in a lot of pain.
‘Dog’ had this to say :
“I’m good and she’s trying to do good,” the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star said in response to a caller asking about their well-being. “On a 1 to 10 [scale] her pain is about a 9 so…she’s not good.”
Prior to Beth finding out she had cancer, Beth was quite an active woman. She went for long walks and strength trained with a trainer daily.
“The doctor said she was the most healthiest 49-year-old female he’d seen, so this stuff can attack the healthiest,” Dog, 64, said. “You don’t have to be sick to catch cancer. She was really healthy.”
Despite the chronic pain, Dog said his wife is determined not to let this disease win. “This is not stopping her now. She’s bedridden but she’s up every once in a while,” he said, noting that she can’t move a lot because of back pain. “You just gotta keep going.”
