‘Little Couple’ Star Jen Arnold Begins Chemo For Cancer, Tweets Photo From Hospital
Earlier this month, Jen Arnold, star of TLC’s “The Little Couple,” revealed she had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The 39-year-old mother of two has since been updating her many fans on Twitter and on Friday (Dec. 27) shared a photo straight from the hospital ward.

After initially going public with the diagnosis, Arnold told HuffPost: “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 week later, Arnold revealed the devastating backstory to People magazine: When she and husband Bill Klein were in India to pick up their daughter Zoey, Arnold began bleeding. Back in the States, she was diagnosed with stage 3 choriocarcinoma, a rare cancer that began with a non-viable pregnancy she suffered in September. She has since undergone a hysterectomy.

Right before Christmas, Klein shared some news regarding his wife’s situation, after which Jen elaborated:

Thank you for waking up with me @ReallyBillKlein: ‘So we aborted chemo today… Low counts. Just did our 2am neupogen…’
