'Little Couple' Star Gives Positive Cancer Update
February 04, 2014
The Little Couple star Jen Arnold has been battling a rare form of cancer since late last year, but now she's revealing exciting news about success in her treatment.
"I had my official last chemo treatment," the 39-year-old Arnold told People magazine. "And while I'm hesitant to say I'm cancer-free – maybe that's common for people who have had cancer -- I'm doing great. Everything is moving in the right direction. I am very excited."
Arnold -- who stars on the TLC reality show The Little Couple with her husband Bill Klein -- also revealed her exciting news via Twitter:
What a wonderful way to celebrate #WorldCancerDay! I am done with cancer!— Jennifer Arnold, MD (@JenArnoldMD) February 4, 2014
"It actually got harder as more time went on," Arnold told the magazine. "Some weeks were more difficult than others with different side effects. I had a lot of fatigue and nausea and some days it just felt like my hands and feet were very heavy."
Jen revealed last December that she had been diagnosed with cancer, disclosing that she first experienced symptoms while in India to adopt her daughter Zoey and returned home to discover she suffered from stage 3 choriocarcinoma, a rare cancer that began with a non-viable pregnancy she suffered in September.
