Jen Arnold's cancer battle will be documented on TLC's popular television show "The Little Couple."
According to a Dec. 6, 2013 report by People.com, Arnold is suffering from a rare form of cancer, and she has graciously allowed TLC cameras to record her battle for a television audience. The brave woman is a wife, mother, professor and doctor, and she reportedly hopes to use her experience to educate others and help those undergoing similar struggles.
Jen Arnold's cancer treatment includes chemotherapy and surgery. Fans already see Arnold as an inspiration because of her refusal to let her below average height prevent her from doing anything that she wants to do. She has already accomplished so much in her life, and she has helped many children and families in her role as neonatologist at Texas Children's Hospital where she is the medical director of the Pediatric Simulation Center. She is also an assistant professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine. Everyone is wishing her the best of luck in winning this tough battle.
Arnold posted the following message on Facebook:
A MESSAGE FROM JEN: "I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy. I am very fortunate as the prognosis is very 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."
