Beth Chapman, wife of the TV bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman, died at age 51 on Wednesday.

Beth Chapman was diagnosed in September 2017 with stage II throat cancer after going to the doctor for a persistent cough. The cancer appeared to be gone after two months, but returned in 2018 as stage IV lung cancer. On Mother’s Day, Beth told fellow members at the Source Church in Bradenton, Fla., that her cancer battle had been “the ultimate test of faith” and indicated she had stopped chemo, reports TMZ.
