Duane "Dog" Chapman on Saturday took to Twitter to ask for prayers for his wife Beth during this difficult time.

Beth Chapman, the wife of Hawaii-based bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman, has been placed in a medically induced coma amid her cancer battle. 

Chapman on Sunday confirmed the news on his Facebook by sharing a news article from Hawaii News Now, which reported that his wife was admitted to the ICU at Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu.

He also took to Twitter on Saturday night to ask for prayers for Beth during this difficult time. 

Beth's battle with cancer began after she was diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer, news that she and Duane previously announced on their Facebook page. Despite her cancer being removed, the couple later revealed during the A&E special Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives in November 2017 that it had returned. Beth was hospitalized in April of this year due to an "accumulation of fluid in her lungs" and "doctors performed an emergency procedure to alleviate pressure," the couple said in a statement at the time. 

Beth shared a photograph of herself earlier this week on her Instagram, captioning the photo "#cancerwillnotbeatme." 

Beth starred with her husband on the A&E reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter, which ran from 2004-2012. The show followed Duane and his wife in Hawaii and Colorado as they tracked down bail fugitives. The couple also starred in a spinoff series, Dog and Beth: On the Hunt, which aired on CMT from 2013-2015.
