Dog’s son, Duane Lee Chapman Jr., has also dubbed her condition as “life-threatening.” In addition to that, a source close to the family revealed,

“Beth had not been feeling well for a number of months and finally decided to get checked out. She needed to see her specialist, who is based in Los Angeles. Thankfully, she did when she did. It could have been dramatically worse if she never had that appointment.”

The couple previously documented Beth’s cancer battle in an A&E special, Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives. The 51 years old reality star had emergency surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA.

Get well soon, Beth!
