Dr. Jennifer Arnold is happy to be with her family even when she doesn't feel well. She and her husband, Bill Klein, are the stars of the reality TV show The Little Couple on TLC. Jen and Bill, both 39-years-old, have skeletal dysplasia. Jen is three feet two inches tall. Bill is four feet tall.

In March, Jen and Bill adopted their three-year-old son Will from China. When they went to India to adopt their two-year-old daughter Zoey in October, Jen started bleeding excessively. She flew home to Houston, Texas to get the medical attention she needed while Bill stayed in India with their two children to finish the adoption paperwork.

Jen was diagnosed with stage three choriocarcinoma. Chemotherapy did not stop the mass in her uterus from rapidly growing. She also had three tumors in her lungs and pneumonia. After having a hysterectomy, Jen's attitude about her prognosis is positive.

Fans can read more about Jen and her family in the December 23, 2013 People cover story, 'The Little Couple's Jennifer Arnold: Her Brave Battle' written by Alicia Dennis. In St. Paul, People is available where most entertainment magazines are sold.

Julia Parent also writes St. Paul TV Examiner and St. Paul Magazine Examiner articles.
