Default Little Couple Jen Arnold has cancer

I knew something was up. About 6 weeks ago there was a fuindraiser in my area. She was to be the featured speaker and had ben advertised for almost a year. Bill showed up instead of Jen because she was in the hospital and no other information was given

from Yahoo:

'The Little Couple,' Jen Arnold and Bill Klein, takes Will to the park for the first time. (TLC)
Despite having a challenging career, a loving husband, and two beautiful children, "The Little Couple" star Jen Arnold is in the midst of a serious battle with a rare form of cancer, Yahoo TV has confirmed.

"I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy" the 39-year-old neonatologist explained in a statement.

While a blow like this might devastate many people, Jen, whose upbeat spirit and go-get-'em attitude first caught the attention of TLC viewers during the TV special "Little Couple: Just Married," has already found the silver lining on this very dark cloud.

"I am very fortunate as the prognosis is good," she revealed. That is certainly welcome news indeed, considering that after battling both fertility and surrogacy issues, she and her husband, Bill Klein, expanded their family through adoption and now have son Will, 3, from China, and daughter Zoey, 2, to care for at home.

"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 admitted. "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."

Though no further details about Arnold's cancer are being released and Klein has yet to make a statement, as usual, they are in this together.

"In general, we are pretty tough people," Jen mused earlier this year. "I feel very lucky and fortunate to have the wonderful life I have. We are good at putting things in perspective because of our life experiences. I am not a person to give up when something is important."

Well, this certainly qualifies. Even though this battle is a big one, we're confident no one is better prepared to handle it than she is.

TLC is rallying around the family as well, telling Yahoo TV, "We are asking people to send will wishes on Twitter with #GetWellJen."

We'll be doing just that.

"The Little Couple" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on TLC.

She certainly has a lot of spirit and hope. I admire her very much and wish only the best in her recovery.

This is so awful.

Jen Arnold Opens Up About Her Brave Cancer Fight

With husband Bill Klein by her side, Jen Arnold, star of TLC's The Little Couple is opening up about her fight to get well after her shocking cancer diagnosis exclusively with PEOPLE.

"There are moments I feel just terrible," says Arnold. "I can't believe it is happening. Other times, I feel like this is just a bump in the road."

While Arnold and Klein, both 39, were in India to pick up their daughter Zoey, 2, along with son Will, 3, adopted earlier this year from China, Arnold began bleeding. She contacted her OB-GYN and made the difficult decision to return home to Houston while Klein stayed behind with their kids and nanny to finalize Zoey's paperwork.

"My initial thoughts were all about Zoey," Arnold tells PEOPLE. "But then the bleeding got worse and I was feeling light-headed. It was a hard decision, but I had to go home."

Back in Houston, Arnold, a neonatologist at Texas Children's Hospital, was diagnosed with stage 3 choriocarcinoma, a rare cancer that began with a non-viable pregnancy (the embryo had no heartbeat) she suffered in September.

"The one time I get pregnant," Arnold says ruefully, "I get cancer."

When a cancerous mass in her uterus didn't initially respond to chemotherapy, her doctors decided to perform a hysterectomy.

"We wanted to avoid surgery in her case because of her shortened airway and the difficulties she has had in the past with surgeries," says Dr. Concepcion R. Diaz-Arrastia, director of gynecology oncology at Baylor College of Medicine, who is treating Arnold. "But we felt we had no choice. The disease was not responding to chemotherapy. We had to do this in order to save her life."

Her doctor also did extensive research and contacted specialists around the country to calculate the appropriate dosage of chemotherapy for Arnold, who has a form of dwarfism.

"I called oncologists in Los Angeles, Baltimore, New York, Houston," says Dr. Arrastia, "and no one had experience with treating this type of cancer in a person with skeletal dysplasia. It was a very rare cancer, rare that it was found in a little person … a very rare situation."

Arnold's battle against cancer after welcoming Zoey home will be shared with their millions of fans on future episodes of The Little Couple (a marathon airs Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST).

Oh my God, no!!!!!!!! I love her and her family. I've been a bit out of touch and did not even know Zoey was now home. (I've been sick and not much in touch with anything/body).

It's justttttt notttttttttt fairrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if all the IVF treatments caused the cancer....just like when Guliana Rancic got breast cancer after all her IVF!!!!
