Beth Chapman, wife of Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, has been diagnosed with throat cancer, her husband confirmed in a post on

Chapman, 49, revealed her diagnosis in a letter to friends, obtained by Us Weekly.

"I have been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I hear from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, 'You have cancer,'" she wrote.

Chapman wrote that she finally went to the doctor after experiencing a "nagging cough" for months.

Chapman told friends her doctors discovered a tumor blocking her airway. She said she will undergo "immediate treatment and surgery" to remove the tumor and stop the cancer from spreading.

She told friends she wouldn't provide any further updates until after the surgery.

"To be certain, I've stared down the devil more than once in my life but I've never faced a real life or death decision," she wrote. "My life has never been easy, and I surely don't expect it to start now. Still, I've never been a victim and I won't let cancer beat me."

    So true. My great grandmother died at 85 yrs old and she never saw a doctor once. She grew her own food and didn't have this plastic, synthetic crap we eat today. She died in 1972.

    What a terrible tragedy for another human being. That's the humane, politically correct, socially acceptable and expected thing to say. And I do feel bad for her. Very tragic.

    But on the other hand, chile, fukk that silly fat ass biotch. She sat her two tons of fun ass up there with that hideous cracker she's married to while he was sharing his racist philosophies and cancer wasn't beating her then either.

    Hopefully she'll make it. And lose some of that weight. Those tits look super heavy.

    Looks like she's carrying two garbage bags full of trash on her chest.
