Beth Chapman, wife of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Duane “Dog” Chapman, passed away on Monday at The Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii, at the age of 51.
Beth received a throat cancer diagnosis in 2017, following a medical appointment to have a chronic cough checked out, family spokeswoman Mona Wood-Sword said, according NBC 11. Doctors removed a tumor and although she was then deemed cancer-free, Beth was subsequently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
Beth was hospitalized in a medically-induced coma since June 21. According to Wood-Sword, doctors put her into the medically-induced coma to help ease her pain.
It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.
