Dog the Bounty Hunter Gives Health Update on Wife

November 29, 2017 Updated: November 29, 2017

Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman revealed on Monday, Nov. 27, that his wife Beth has “no cancer” after test results came back.

“This could be a miracle. This could be a healing,” Duane said on the A&E special “Dog and Beth: The Fight of Their Lives” that aired Monday, according to Rare. “[The doctor] said if I wasn’t such a good husband, it wouldn’t have worked out that great. Oh I can breathe. Beth Chapman, you did it.”

Beth Chapman was diagnosed with throat cancer. Earlier this year, she said in a letter to friends, obtained by Radar, “As most of you know I’ve spent a lifetime facing tests and challenges I didn’t see coming and certainly never expected. 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.'”

In Septemeber, Doctors removed a “plum”-sized tumor from her neck.

“As I start this battle, I don’t see a lot of optimism,” she said in a trailer for the A&E special. “They give me 50/50 chances.”

Beth, meanwhile, told Fox that cancer was a “reality check” as she recovers.

“I feel pretty good. I get tired easily. My voice gives out after a certain amount of time. It’s a slow process to come back, but I try to keep my stress level very low,” she said. “I try not to get upset about anything. But mainly… [I’m] thankful that I can talk for any amount of time. That I can still see my children,” she said. “We’re just taking it day-by-day. We’ve gotten a reality check on life, and life is short.”
