'Dog the Bounty Hunter' star Beth Chapman in medically-induced coma


"Dog the Bounty Hunter" star Duane Chapman shared a photo of his wife, Beth Chapman, from beside the hospital bed, giving fans a small update.

Beth Chapman, 51, and her husband found fame on the A&E reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter, which chronicled the adventures of their family-owned bounty hunting business and aired from 2004 to 2012.

According to The Blast, medics have now suggested the "Dog & Beth: On the Hunt" star undergoes a tracheostomy - where an incision is made in the neck and a tube inserted into the trachea to help with breathing - and has a feeding tube inserted.

Beth Chapman was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2017 and suffered a re-occurrence in November. She even beat the disease for a while, becoming completely cancer free after having the cancer removed.

Beth's last post on her official Instagram account before being hospitalized was a sweet birthday message to her daughter Cecily whom she encouraged to stay sweet, or she would answer to her Momma.

"Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers". The caption read, "You all know how she is about HER NAILS!"

Family spokeswoman Mona Wood-Sword said Monday that as of then she was still in a coma to spare her from pain from her treatment. In the photo, you can also see Beth's hospital bracelets and IV.

In a statement to Hawaii News Now, Dog said both he and his family "humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth".

"Duane and the family feel she's such a fighter, she could get better", Wood-Sword told AP. She is now at home resting with her husband.

"Chemotherapy is not my bag, people", she said. "He'll roll his eyes at me again, because I know why - because this is the ultimate test of faith". Last November, it was discovered that her throat cancer had not only returned, but spread to her lungs. "This is my ultimate lesson". "I've been with her since she was 19, she's nearly 100".

Family members have revealed that sadly there is nothing more that can be done for Beth at this time and the family has begun making tough medical decisions at the advice of her doctors.
