Jen Arnold, star of the TLC show “The Little Couple” has announced she is battling cancer.

Arnold revealed to People.com she has a rare form of the disease, although she didn’t specify exactly which type. Arnold and husband Bill Klein, who have both starred on the reality TV show for four years, recently adopted a son from China and a daughter from India.

Arnold’s statement reads:

"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 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 Little Couple” finished its fifth season earlier in the fall.
