Sad news today: One half of TLC’s The Little Couple, Jen Arnold, has revealed that she is battling cancer.
“I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy,” Jen told People in a statement that was released Friday.
The good news? The statistics are in Jen’s favor, and it’s likely that she’ll be on the road to health very soon.
“I am very fortunate as the prognosis is good. While there is never a good time to get news like this, getting it just as we are building our new family is tough in many ways,” Jen added. “But being surrounded by the love of my husband and our two beautiful children is actually in many ways giving me the strength to fight it even stronger."
The beautiful children in question are Will, 3, and Zoey, 2, who Jen and her husband Bill Klein have adopted from China and India, respectively. We know they’ll be an awesome support system for their mom during this tough time.
We have no doubt that Jen will pull through — after all, she’s already survived over 30 surgeries to treat her dwarfism. Cancer ain’t got nothin’ on her!
