With the recent adoption of their second child, this year should be full of happiness for The Little Couple stars Jen Arnold and Bill Klein. Unfortunately, a serious health scare has put a damper on their exciting news.
“I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy,” Jen revealed. “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. 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.”
A spokesperson for TLC added that the reality TV star will allow cameras to film her battle with the disease. “Jen is a doctor and a teacher and she saw this as an opportunity to educate and possibly help, through sharing her story,” the network said.
This won’t be the only struggle that the couple has faced in front of cameras. They also shared their story of adopting two kids, Will, 3, from China and Zoey, 2, from India, after struggling with fertility and surrogacy.
