Beth was first diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer in November 2017. She underwent successful surgery, but doctors months later told her the cancer had returned. Although she began chemotherapy in December 2018, Duane told Us Weekly at the time that she wanted to explore alternative therapies instead.

“Beth will not take anything the doctors want to give her. Even the doctor told me he doesn’t want her to have seizures if the pain is that bad, but she won’t do it,” he said. “She takes over-the-counter pain meds. She will not take anything prescription.”

Beth wrote on Instagram in February that she was testing out CBD and THC-based therapies and alleged that chemotherapy was “poison.” Read more.
