In 2017, it was revealed that Beth Chapman, Dog the Bounty Hunter star was dealing with a throat cancer and was undergoing rigorous treatment.
She shared that doctors found a T2 tumor in her throat in September, which was blocking her breathing, and she immediately underwent surgery and began treatment. Now in early January, 2018 she opened up about her post-cancer treatment.
It was a struggle
She also revealed her haunting memory when she had hard time telling her kids that she was dignosed with throat cancer. During treatment, love and support from her husband and children were what kept her going.
“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.”

Apart from the good news
Despite the good news there seems to be bit of a what you might call an insecurity problem. On New Year’s Day, she posted a picture on Instagram showing her neck for the first time since cancer-treatment.
Previously, she always had a chocker or jewelry that covered up her scar.
But now she has gained the confidence to show her scar to the world- talking about body positivity. She has also talked about how it has affected her body image.
“Prior to my surgery, I had no lines, no wrinkles, a perfect neck if you will. It has been very hard to look at this in the mirror, it serves as a constant reminder of something I’d love to forget. However some life lessons you should never forget only learn from them and learn to embrace them so today I reveal my worst battle scar and know that things will get better in #2018 #secondchances#DogandBeth#battlescars.”
The 50 year old has also shared that she plans to embrace her “battle scar” and view her health struggles as a life lesson going forward.
