Beth Chapman, the wife of Duane “Dog” Chapman has passed away after a brave battle with cancer.

Duane Chapman, who starred on the reality program Dog the Bounty Hunter, shared the sad news via Twitter, tweeting, “It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”

A rep for the Chapman’s released a statement to People, saying, “Beth died at 5:32 this morning, the same time she would wake up to go hiking Koko Head. The exact same time. She was surrounded by family and Dog was there, holding her hand.”

Just days prior Duane Chapman revealed his wife had been placed in a medically induced coma and asked everyone for prayers.

Beth announced in 2017 she had been diagnosed with stage II throat cancer. She underwent successful throat surgeries, but doctors later discovered the cancer had returned.
