Jen Arnold, of TLC’s series The Little Couple recently revealed that she is undergoing treatment for a rare form of cancer.
People magazine was the first to report the news, as the 39-year-old told them exclusively, "I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy.”
Jen, who is married to husband Bill Klein, 38, and mother to son Will, 3, whom they adopted from China, and daughter Zoey, 2, whom they recently adopted from India, is remaining extremely optimistic during this rough time.
Arnold shared her positive outlook on her Twitter page Friday morning, stating, "It's out there! But I am in the process of beating this!"
This couple has unfortunately encountered several health implications, including a miscarriage via surrogate back in 2011, however, in an interview with People earlier this year, the couple opened up about how they stay strong in troubling times.
"In general, we are pretty tough people. 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. We feel so lucky to be parents," Arnold explained.
Not only does Arnold have the support of her loving husband and family, but from many fans as well. Fans have been extending their love and support for the star on Twitter using the hashtag #getwelljen.
We send Jen our best wishes!
