Arnold and her husband Bill Klein -- both of whom suffer from dwarfism -- have two adopted children, 3-year-old son Will and 2-year-old daughter Zoey.

"I am very fortunate as the prognosis is good," Arnold told the magazine. "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."

Arnold did not elaborate further on the type of cancer she's fighting or what treatment methods she's receiving.
