The 49-year-old Dog and Bounty Hunter star, who was diagnosed with the disease this summer, has said that she is going to fight the disease with all she has got.
The teaser for her upcoming two-hour special shows she and her husband, recalling the moment she knew about the disease. Duane Chapman, 64 said, "They said, ''I'm sorry, Dog," that's when I knew.''
Beth continued, "As I start this battle, I don't see a lot of optimism. They give me 50/50 chances."
Beth shared her health condition with her friends via an emotional email which reads:
After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of Stage 2 throat cancer.
The letter continues,
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.
She also mentioned that she would be having surgery to remove the tumor, and planned to battle the disease.
The couple has been in a married relationship for 11 years and shares four children together, while Beth is Duane's fifth wife, and has 12 children including four with Beth.
