Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Wife Beth Has a 50/50 Chance of Surviving Cancer (VIDEO)
It's been over a month since Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife, Beth Chapman, revealed she's been diagnosed with cancer, but her prognosis is looking grimmer than ever.
A&E will air a special chronicling the family's struggle with Beth's illness, and the first teaser shows it's not looking good.
In fact, the mom of four admits she has a 50/50 chance of making it.
“I've been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years,” Beth wrote in a letter in September revealing her diagnosis.
“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.’”
Beth has a T2 tumor on her throat, which obstructs her breathing. Doctors suggested she undergo surgery immediately.
And in a new teaser to promote the network's upcoming special, the 49-year-old comes to terms with her sickness.
"I don't see a lot of optimism," she says of her stage 2 cancer. "They gave me 50/50 chances."
"I want my children to see what a fight their mother put up," she continues, as husband Dog asks, "what's going to happen if you leave us forever?!"
In the clips, we also see Beth being wheeled into an operating room and watch as her kids break down at the possibility of losing their mom.
But as she wrote in her heartbreaking letter, the reality star isn't going to let this cancer destroy her.
“I realize the road I am about to travel will be rocky, full of unexpected twists and turns. But I know one thing for sure. A bend in the road is not the end of the road,” she wrote.
"I will fight every step of the way. My husband and children are counting on me to be there for years to come. I am so very grateful to be surrounded by family and friends who have given me incredible support during this very challenging time.”
We're keeping the Chapman family in our prayers!
