'Dog the Bounty Hunter's' Beth Chapman Diagnosed with Cancer

Beth Chapman is battling cancer.

The wife of Duane “Dog” Chapman and his co-star on "Dog the Bounty Hunter" for nine years shared the news in a letter to friends, revealing she was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer.

A copy of the letter, obtained by RadarOnline.com, states, “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.’”

"After months of a nagging cough," the 49-year-old continued, “a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of stage II throat cancer. I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses.”

Beth went on to say that she won’t know her prognosis until after the surgery.

Through it all, she is striving to stay positive. She insisted, “A bend in the road is not the end of the road.”
