Beth Chapman Worries Fans After Sharing Cryptic Post

Ever since her cancer diagnosis, Beth and her husband Duane “Dog” Chapman, have been sharing regular updates about her health with their fans.

At some point the Dog the Bounty Hunter star appeared to be on the path to recovery, but unfortunately, her cancer wasn’t fully cured.

In December 2018, Beth was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for an emergency surgery to remove a mass in her throat twice the size of last time. The cancer had spread to her lungs as well.

Despite the grim prognosis and rounds of chemotherapy, Beth has remained positive and strong, occasionally sharing positive memes and wisdom with her fans on social media. However, things took a turn recently when the reality star shared a post that left many of her devoted fans worrying about her condition.  

The 51-year-old shared a heartbreaking post on Instagram that read “Watching someone you love die is an image you’ll never forget.” The photo was not accompanied by a caption, which left fans trying to guess if this post is about herself or someone else in her life. The post inspired many fans to take to the comments to share their own stories of loss.

Neither Dog nor any other member of the Chapman family have commented on Beth’s brow-raising post.

Beth has since posted more photos on her Instagram page and they’re all much more positive. Her latest post is a photo of her sleeping husband. In the caption, she wrote that while Dog tries not to show that he is worried and stressed, she can make it out from his face when he’s asleep. She added that she gets her strength from her husband, who has been by her side throughout the entire cancer ordeal.

“HE SLEEPS! When he finally does sleep you can still see the worry and stress on his face,” Beth wrote. “He has been by my side non stop since this happened strong and encouraging me every day ! There is no doubt we’re my strength comes from . Being with him is the most important thing to me .Ours is one of the greatest love story’s never told. ❤️It’s a love worth fighting 🥊 4! Ty for loving me sooo much.”

Beth and Dog’s lives took a turn in late 2017 when she received the devastating cancer diagnosis. At the time, she revealed the news to her fans in an open letter.

“I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years 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 wrote.

While Beth did opt for chemotherapy the first time around, she made the decision to forgo the treatment this time around.

“Chemotherapy is not my bag people. That is not for me,” Beth said in a live stream. “For me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it’ll either be taught to you or to me.”

We’re keeping Beth in our prayers as she goes through this trying time. Cancer is an awful disease, but we’re confident Beth can beat it again.

Abby Lee Miller Opens Up About Cancer Recovery

In April of 2018, Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller was hit with life-changing news. After she left prison, she was living in a halfway house with the intention of restarting her life. Instead, she ended up fighting for it.

Miller had excruciating neck pain and weakness in her arm, which lead to an emergency surgery.

“In the span of 24 hours, which was something that I have not seen, her condition rapidly deteriorated,” her doctor Hooman Melamaed of the Cedar Sinai Marina de Rey Hospital said. “She was completely paralyzed from the neck down.”

Miller was diagnosed with a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, called Burkitt lymphoma, which is known for killing its patients in a matter of weeks. However, chemotherapy and surgeries all helped Miller stay alive, even though it was a treacherous process.

“I had 52 staples perfectly aligned and now a bunch of crazy stitches are holding my neck & lumbar region together!” she wrote after one of her surgeries.

Now, after 10 rounds of chemotherapy, Miller has some big news to share.

“The cancer’s gone,” she revealed to Us. “Burkitt lymphoma’s gone. I had a PET scan, and it was cleared. Not one cell of cancer after three rounds of chemo. But I still had seven more just for safety, which was stupid. I should have just worked on therapy.”

The chemotherapy might be over, but Miller will have to do extensive rehabilitation to learn how to walk again. She believes that if an MRI would have been done sooner, that could have been prevented.

“If the ER doctor wouldn’t have said, ‘Oh, go home and take it easy for 10 days. You’ll be fine,’ then they would have actually tested me and done an MRI and looked further at the blood labs. Then they would have known there was something really dramatically wrong,” she noted. “They could have done something, and they would have started the chemo immediately and … the mass of the infection would have never gotten strong enough to choke my spinal cord, and I wouldn’t be in a wheelchair and I’d be walking.”

It’s not the first time Miller has called out her doctors, either. One the one-year anniversary of her surgery, Miller asked the doctors who ignored her to stop practicing.

One year ago today ~ I underwent emergency surgery for an infection in my spine. This mass/tumor choking my spinal cord turned out to be Burkitt Lymphoma. I endured ten rounds of chemo therapy (each lasting 6 days with 4/ 24hr bags pumping poison into my body ending with a spinal tap in 3 spots, plus another shot of Chemo into my tailbone area up the spinal cord around my brain cavity) Ten times!

Another spine surgery was needed & I have one more still to go. I struggled thru months of physical therapy to learn to sit up again, to crawl and maybe with a miracle someday I’ll walk. Why didn’t the ER Doctors on duty do their jobs? I came in twice with the same symptoms? Why didn’t somebody listen to me, the patient?

I finally found the right team that’s why I lived to tell my story, I have a lot to say! Thank you to all wonderful top notch professionals who continue to help me heal. For those who missed it, misdiagnosed me, and the so called Federal “Doctor” who took me off medication cold turkey and the other ER “Doctor Hollywood” who told me to go home and take it easy for 10 days – STOP practicing! Please 🙏🏻

Miller admitted that the cancer battle was lonely, and that at some points she didn’t care if she was going to die.

“You definitely feel alone,” she said. “My three friends were there [at the hospital but] I’m an only child, my mom and dad are both deceased and I’m not married, I don’t have siblings to lean on. That’s why, for me, if I died, it didn’t really matter. There were people who care about me, but there wasn’t anybody dependent upon me.”

Both her parents died of cancer, so Miller assumed that’s how she would go as well.

“I always thought I would die of cancer because my mom and my dad both died of cancer. My dad died of osteocancer, and my mom died of colon cancer,” she told Us. “But I just never thought it would happen this soon and this fast and this ugly.”

As for whether or not her cancer will appear again, the reality star doesn’t want to ask.

“I haven’t asked that. I would be afraid to ask that, but I don’t think it’s that kind of a cancer,” she told Us. “It’s a lymphoma, but it’s not … It’s like this weird, strange, bizarre thing that happens, and it’s gone and we need to move on.”

In true working-woman fashion Miller is ready to get back to work and back on TV.

“I feel OK,” she said. “I want to go back to the weight I was when I got out of prison. I want to get back on track and get back to my life in Los Angeles. And I want to sell these TV shows.”

Even if you didn’t like Miller on Dance Moms, you have to admire her fight against such an awful disease.
