Beth Chapman‘s death was very shocking to many of her and Dog The Bounty Hunter‘s fans, but her daughter is now sharing just how difficult her last days actually were, saying, “She quite literally choked on her cancer.”
The Chapman’s daughter Bonnie spoke to SurvivorNet and was very candid about the last days of her mother’s life.
Bonnie, who is 20 and the youngest daughter of Dog and Beth, says the last time the family spoke to her while she was fully conscious was in the couple’s bathroom.
“She quite literally choked on her cancer. My mom was naked in the bathroom and told my dad to look at her. And he goes, ‘I am looking at you.’ And she goes, ‘No, look at me.’ And then she was standing there and she started gasping, and my sister came into the room and they called 911 immediately. And that was the last moment that we really saw her completely conscious.” said Bonnie.
Bonnie says Dog still struggles with what happened that day, explaining, “My dad goes over and over and over what happened because he can’t get it out of his head,”
As we reported, Beth was rushed to a Hawaii hospital after her family called 911 and remained in various stages of a coma until her death.
Bonnie explained, “It’s really hard I’m not gonna lie, to see new moments of [my mom] that I haven’t seen… it brings back a flood of emotion. It makes me feel like she’s still here, but then I’m brought back to reality, realizing it’s something that happened in the past, not right now.”
Beth did say several more “last words” to her family from the hospital in the next few days. But the painful memory of that day has kept Dog from returning to Hawaii. The couple also has a home in Colorado.
The family’s new reality show, “Dog’s Most Wanted,” is about to launch and we’re told viewers will get a very intimate view of Beth’s battle with cancer.
In the end, Bonnie explains it was Beth’s decision to stop chemotherapy because of the horrible side effects it had on her.
“She had complained about every single joint in her body starting to ache… about her not being able to get up by herself to use the bathroom. It was hell to her.” Bonnie explained.
Beth had emergency surgery to remove a tumor in her throat but Bonnie says she ultimately succumbed to cancer that had spread.
“A lot of places have been reporting that she passed away to her throat cancer, but it was actually stage IV lung cancer in the end,” she explained.
