Reality TV star Beth Chapman has been admitted to the ICU at the Queen’s Medical Center and is in a medically-induced coma, her family said in a statement Saturday.

In a statement Saturday, Duane Chapman said he and his family “humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth.”
The family also sent their “sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth’s battle with cancer.”
Beth Chapman was first diagnosed with throat cancer in September 2017. Later that year doctors said she was clear, but it later came back and spread to her lungs.
In the statement, the family asked people to “please pray for Beth,” according to Hawaii New Now. They also sent “sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth’s battle with cancer.”
Duane Chapman was convicted of first degree murder in 1976 and served eighteen months of a five-year sentence in a Texas prison.
After his release, he rose to fame in 2004 after the launch of his ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ TV show, in which he tracks down criminals.
After Beth Chapman was diagnosed with cancer the pair made a special programme called Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives, which included 13-hour surgery Beth had to remove a Stage 2 tumour.
At the end of 2018 it was revealed that the cancer was “incurable”.
In April she was taken to hospital with “serious breathing issues” and she has been in a medically induced coma since Saturday.
The Chapman family is known for their Hawaii bounty hunting and bail bonds business, which was featured on the hit A&E show, “Dog the Bounty Hunter.”
Beth Chapman underwent successful surgery for throat cancer in 2017. But last year, doctors told her the cancer had returned and she underwent emergency surgery in November to remove a tumor in her throat.
