In a recent Facebook post, Dog the Bounty Hunter star Beth Chapman shared a loving, heartfelt message for her devoted husband Duane “Dog” Chapman, in which she bravely proclaimed, “I’m gonna do whatever I wanna do with the time we have left.”
Beth is currently filming a new television spin-off show named Dog’s Most Wanted based on the wildly-popular Dog the Bounty Hunter show. Beth also continues her uphill battle against cancer, which she first learned about in September 2017.
Despite beating the disease twice, it appears that it’s returned, and this time for good.
In late January, it was announced that she was receiving treatment for the disease and she was responding well to it. However, it now appears that she may have much less time than initially expected.
Beth not only shared her beautiful message for her husband, but she also reassured her fans of her will to fight on. Her full post read:
“I’m very happy out here on the road with my honey, catching bad guys, making memories. Life’s [too] short to care about the background noise. All I hear is the music playing in my ear. I so love you, my darlin’, I know you’re worried about me but let’s just be real. I’m keeping up with you, Duane Lee Chapman. I know [you] know I’m gonna do whatever I want with the time we have left. We’re gonna go full throttle. Sick or not, here we come again!”
Her message also promoted the highly-anticipated debut of their new Dog’s Most Wanted series. In the show, the couple embarks on dangerous missions with their motley crew in search of fugitives.
Beth’s newest post only got her fans more excited as they sent their positive thoughts, prayers, and energy to the star.
On Facebook, a fan named Lisa Dehaven commented:
“Go, girl! Glad you’re not taking your situation laying down. Love your life and family more than ever before. You need a miracle from God and I am praying it will be granted. You have a lot of people who love you and they say prayers in numbers [have] power.” Priscilla Leon-Gallegos added, “I love watching you [and] Dog every night on TV. The Lord is so great, you are going to get better and beat cancer. The whole world’s praying for you.”

As of late, Beth has also been very active on social media, sharing empowering messages of courage and resilience in the face of her deadly struggle.
Most recently, she shared on Facebook a heartwarming story about an experience she had at a local restaurant involving a waitress, writing:
“Seriously touched by an angel. Was waiting for big daddy to finish his podcast today and waited in a little restaurant called Josephine’s in Boca Raton. The waitress was kind, not nosy but helpful and cordial. When I went to pay my bill, I gave her my Amex [card] and she disappeared into the restaurant.“

“As I [sat there] enjoying my martini and sitting silently on the beautiful Tommy Bahamas furniture in the restaurant, I was reminded what a huge responsibility it is to be famous,” Beth continued. “After running my credit card to pay the bill, she realized who I was. She came back to my table with tears in her eyes. See, she watches our show every day for inspiration and knows I’ve got lung cancer. She was so devastated that it was me, [that] the beautiful woman she was waiting on had terminal cancer. You can not imagine… I told her, ‘Honey, don’t cry, it’s all okay. Whatever the Lord’s will is is how it’s going to be.“
The star concludes:
“We can laugh or we can cry. I choose both and sometimes at the same time! It was sad to leave my new little friend Perla as she knows for sure this was a one-time meeting, luck of fate if you will… I’m not dead yet. Let’s continue to live till they say I’m done! Onward off to Lexington Kentucky where more fans are waiting to say hello…“
We’re all keeping Beth and her husband in our prayers as she continues her spirited fight against a deadly disease.
