According to People, 51-year-old Beth was admitted to Hawaii’s Queen’s Medical Center’s on Saturday. She's now been put into a medically-induced coma, reports Hawaii News Now. "It’s quite serious," a rep for the Chapmans told People. Chapman's husband Duane "Dog" Chapman said both he and his family "humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth."

On Saturday evening, the couple's daughter, Bonnie Chapman shared a cute picture of her parent's cuddling and captioned it with two heart emojis. She did not mention anything about Beth Chapman being hospitalized. Beth's battle with cancer began in 2017 when she was first diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in September. Two months later, her fans were relieved when they announced that the cancer was completely gone and she was now healthy!
Unfortunately, the cancer returned last year and Beth had to be rushed to the hospital for an emergency surgery in November. There was a blockage in her throat that was obstructing her airways and unless she had the surgery, she wouldn't have been able to breathe. Again, in April, she was hospitalized for concerns over her health. But she's been strong and has been fighting cancer with all her might.
Speaking to churchgoers in Florida on Mother’s Day, Beth revealed that her diagnosis has been "the ultimate test of faith." She said, "I don’t go to God and go, ‘Why did I get cancer?’ He’ll roll his eyes at me again because I know why — because this is the ultimate test of faith. It is the evidence of things hoped for and it is the substance of things not known. During the speech, she also stated at having stopped her chemo treatments.
"Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me," she said. "So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing." Beth is said to have started chemo in January and she confirmed it through her Instagram account with the hashtags #cancersucks, #stayhumblepray and #itsonlyhair.
People took social media to share their prayers and wished Beth a speedy recovery. Lance Miller commented on the post: Dog we love you and Beth and our Prayers are with you and your entire family in this time of need you and your family are a wonderful inspiration to so many in the world and we all sure hope the Lord allows Beth to overcome this and come back to you. Debbie Oneill added: God Bless Her Heart Prayers Sent Your Way Family And Friends.
