Dating after cancer diagnosis


The two tell Too Fab they're stepping away from the bounty hunting business amid her battle with throat cancer, which will be chronicled on A&E's two-hour special "Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives." Earlier this year, Beth and Duane "Dog" Chapman learned Beth had throat cancer, a diagnosis that shook them to their very core and changed everything for their family going forward.After Beth underwent a 13-hour surgery to have a Stage II tumor removed in September, the two are stepping away from something near and dear to their hearts: bounty hunting.The Chapmans once again opened up their lives up to cameras for A&E's "Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives," a two-hour special, premiering on Nov.27, which follows Beth from "diagnosis through surgery and her journey to recovery." Too Fab spoke with them both ahead of the debut, with Beth giving an update on her health and Dog revealing some of the changes in store for his professional life."I'm lucky to be sharing Thanksgiving with my family, and I'm lucky to be here for these holidays," Beth told Too Fab. My voice is not strong all the time, it comes and goes sometimes and sometimes it just stops." "It was a very scary situation," she continued.



"I think the real reason why we shared it is because our fans have lived through a lot of stuff with us. People have a different respect for law enforcement, which is quite saddening," Beth said.Dating way back to 2003 when my husband caught Andrew Luster, to 2005 when they tried to extradite him back to Mexico, the death of my father, the death of my daughter, our wedding, baby Lyssa's wedding, they've been our fans through thick and thin and this wasn't something you could hide, this wasn't like a family breakup or family riff, this was something far more serious that could have had fatal ramifications," she explained. I felt like our fans have been so loyal to us that we really owed it to share it with them, so that if I could be a blessing to even one person, help one person get early detection, then we really owed it to them to show the struggle and show that you can make it, you can get through it, you just need to have a positive attitude." That positive attitude helped them get through a tough time, but cutting out the negativity and stress going forward also meant separating themselves from the bounty hunting business. "A lot of people do not have a respect for the judicial system and it is causing a slight collapse of our society.I feel like, even though I had a 50/50 chance with this surgery, Duane has a 50/50 chance every time he leaves the house and that contributes to my stress." She continued, "Will he come home alive every day that he leaves?There is a completely different mood in our country these days.
