Beth Chapman, the wife of Duane “Dog” Chapman, has died following a long battle with throat cancer.

Dog the Bounty Hunter, 66, shared the heartbreaking news this Wednesday, June 26, on Twitter.

"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," he wrote.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Beth, 51, was placed in a medically-induced coma on the weekend of June 22 following health complications. She was admitted to the ICU at the Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii, where she remained until her death.

“Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you,” Duane, 66, tweeted on Sunday, June 23.

Beth was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer on November 2017. Though she was recovering, the illness returned last year, and she was rushed to the hospital for surgery.

This April she was again rushed to the emergency room with “serious breathing issues.”

“Half of her lung was full of water,” an emotional Duane told Radar at that time.

In her final days, Beth was no longer undergoing chemotherapy as was instead resting at home with her family.

“Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me,” she said during a speech at the Source Church in Bradenton, Florida this Mother’s Day. “So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing.”

She is survived by her husband, Doug, and the four children they shared together, Dominic, 34, Cecily, 26, Bonnie, 20, and Garry, 18.

R.I.P. Beth Chapman.
