Beth Chapman, famous for her work as a bounty hunter along with her husband Duane “Dog” Chapman, was hospitalized on April 6. Fluid reportedly accumulated in her lungs, The Blast reported. To “alleviate pressure,” she underwent an “emergency procedure.”

According to SurvivorNet, “A lot of people" living with cancer experience a “series” of hospitalizations “when something unexpected goes wrong.” The publication further explained that lung cancer can lead “pleural effusion,” which is not an uncommon type of fluid that builds up that affects other people diagnosed with lung cancer.

Bounty hunter Dog says Beth is his ‘rock’

Dog credited Beth for being his “rock,” as well as his “bodyguard,” several media outlets reported early in April. Amid her battle against cancer, he also opened up about his emotions, acknowledging that Beth is his “everything,” Fox 8 noted. He stated that he has “cried” a great deal while Beth has been “fighting like hell.”

Live life ‘to the fullest’ in midst of cancer battle

Beth has been tough in her fight against cancer, showing her determination to live “life to the fullest” in spite of her diagnosis, Fox also reported.

She has continued working, “on the hunt," as Dog relayed. Simultaneous to her courageous effort to the best life possible with her husband, she has retained her desire to “enjoy” their time “left together.”

The couple is set on holding onto hope, according to Country Living. The publication reported that Beth’s stage four lung cancer is not something that they allow to “slow them down.” Equally important to their positivity is their approach to deciding that they cannot “admit defeat.”

WGN show scheduled for air this year

While staying strong for each other, and giving the battle with cancer their all, the Chapmans have also maintained taping their WGN reality show, “Dog’s Most Wanted.” Dog’s son Leland is also an important member of the family’s bounty hunting team.
