The Little Couple star Jen Arnold revealed she has cancer, People reports. The TLC reality personality and neonatologist has recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.

“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,” Arnold said in a statement. “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.”
