Dogg the Bounty Hunter: Season 7 episode 43

Beth Chapman, the wife of Duane ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ is in a medically induced coma after a long struggle with cancer.

The 51-year-old reality TV star has been admitted to the intensive care unit at Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii, according to a statement made by the family on Saturday.

Duane Chapman tweeted: “Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you”.

Beth Chapman was first diagnosed with throat cancer in September 2017. Later that year doctors said she was clear, but it later came back and spread to her lungs.

In the statement, the family asked people to “please pray for Beth,” according to Hawaii New Now. They also sent “sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth’s battle with cancer.”

Duane Chapman was convicted of first degree murder in 1976 and served eighteen months of a five-year sentence in a Texas prison.

After his release, he rose to fame in 2004 after the launch of his 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' TV show, in which he tracks down criminals.

After Beth Chapman was diagnosed with cancer the pair made a special programme called Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives, which included 13-hour surgery Beth had to remove a Stage 2 tumour.

At the end of 2018 it was revealed that the cancer was "incurable".

In April she was taken to hospital with “serious breathing issues” and she has been in a medically induced coma since Saturday.
