2. The Reality Star Has Been Diagnosed With a Rare Form of Cancer

4. Her Prognosis “Looks Good”

Arnold’s husband Bill Klein is showing a great amount of support to his wife as she’s going through this difficult time. While hearing that Jen Arnold’s illness is a rare form of cancer, it sounds quite scary, but apparently Arnold is doing quite well. She states:

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.

The exact name of Arnold’s type of cancer has not yet been released.

TLC is asking that Little Couple fans send their well-wishes to Arnold on Twitter using the hashtag #getwelljen.
