Beth Smith Is No More Cancer Free
As per the recent reports, Beth has been diagnosed with stage II throat cancer. It is a tragic moment for Beth and her family she said:
“As most of you know I’ve spent a lifetime facing tests and challenges I didn’t see coming and certainly never expected,”
“I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer.’”
She further said:
“After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of stage II throat cancer. I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses.”
Despite all this, she is dealing with the situation very positively as she further said:
"My husband and children are counting on me to be there for years to come. I am so very grateful to be surrounded by family and friends who have given me incredible support during this very challenging time.”
As long as her husband "Dog Chapman" and children are on her side she can fight anything even cancer. As of now, we can only wish for her good health and hope God will give her the courage to deal with the situation.
Beth who was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in September 2017 was cancer-free a year ago but tragically doctors found cancer cells in her all again!
As per some reliable sources, the cancer cells were detected when she was undergoing emergency surgery on 27 November 2018.
Dog revealed about Beth's operation,
"She had a lump in her throat twice the size of last time, and they performed an emergency surgery yesterday. They cut a hole in her throat so she can breathe; she can still talk. … "
He gave another update about Beth that shocked many people around,
"They got most of the throat cancer out. Her airway is clear now, but the doctors are afraid that it has spread. They are doing a biopsy scan to check if it has spread. … Last time it didn’t spread at all, so we’re hoping the same thing.”
It is, of course, the matter of praise that Beth has full love and support of her loving husband which is the most important thing for an individual during the difficult situation.
She, herself is standing so strong for herself as she's not letting her ongoing cancer battle to steal her joy and happiness. She posted an Instagram image on 11 June 2019 where she insisted that cancer will not beat her.
Well, we hope to see Beth healthy all again very soon!
