“Dog The Bounty Hunter” star Beth Chapman’s daughter, Bonnie Chapman, gave an update about her mother’s condition over the weekend.

Bonnie Chapman flew out to Hawaii to visit her mother in the hospital, following her mother being put into a medically induced coma on June 23.

While there, she shared an update about her mother on Instagram.

“There’s not much of an update I can give, I can say she’s getting good care,” she wrote in her Instagram Story, alongside a photo of hospital equipment. “I know you guys wanted more, but y’know it’s a coma, much much can be updated.”

She also kept fans and loved ones informed via Twitter.

“On a flight home,” she wrote on Twitter on June 23.

And a few hours later, she posted again on Twitter. This time asking for prayers.

“Please continue to pray for my mom.”

Her comment echoes what her father, Duane “Dog” Chapman, wrote on Twitter on June 22.

“Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you.”

“WGN America and Dog’s Most Wanted are sending our thoughts and prayers to Beth Chapman,” WGN America wrote in a Facebook post. “We ask you to do the same to see the Chapman family through this very difficult time. We’ve come to know Beth as a strong, powerful fighter and we have hope that she will recover soon to rejoin her beloved family.”

The first unscripted series on WGN America in over five years, “Dog’s Most Wanted” 10-part series follows Dog and Chapman, as well as his elite team of professionals, The Dirty Dozen, as they hunt down criminals who appear on FBI, U.S. Marshals’, and states’ Most Wanted Fugitives lists throughout the country to bring them to justice, according to

The family also sent out their “sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth’s battle with cancer,” according to HawaiiNewsNow.

In 2017, Beth Chapman underwent successful surgery for throat cancer. However, in late 2018 doctors informed her that her cancer had returned, before she underwent emergency surgery in November to remove a tumor in her throat.

“Another bend in the Road yet not the End of the Road,” she posted on Instagram at the time.

Following Beth’s emergency room visit, Duane gave an update to Us Weekly.

“They got most of the throat cancer out,” he told the outlet at the time. “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. I told them I need to know right away and they’re going to get me the results by tomorrow. Hopefully it hasn’t spread. Last time it didn’t spread at all, so we’re hoping the same thing.”

In May, she issued a statement for the first time about her fight with cancer.

“Fighting cancer is the toughest battle I’ve ever been in,” the 51-year-old said, according to Page Six. “But my faith in God and the love of my family is helping me through.”

On Mother’s Day, Beth told People magazine that her cancer diagnosis has been “the ultimate test of faith.”

“I don’t go to God and go, ‘Why did I get cancer?'” she said. “He’ll roll his eyes at me again, because I know why—because this is the ultimate test of faith. It is the evidence of things hoped for and it is the substance of things not known.”
