    Jen Arnold of The Little Couple has cancer :(

    I was so sad to read about this! I absolutely ADORE watching The Little Couple, especially since they brought their son, Will, home from China. It's so nice to watch something so positive on TV nowadays. They just picked up their newest daughter from India, and in that same time frame, she was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. She's undergoing chemo and radiation now, I really hope she can kick cancer's ass

    I read that a few days ago and was so sad to hear it. I googled it and wish I hadn't as it sounds like the stage 3 version has mets and I think that's got to make it harder to treat. I am so hoping she can beat this and enjoy her family. It is so wrong that the poor woman is pregnant for a few weeks and gets a cancer caused by pregnancy, uhhh. Hoping for her!

    I heard it was a rare form of cancer, I had no idea it was related to her pregnancy. My dd loves this show and told me about Jen a few days ago. We wish her the best.

    I had no idea she was pregnant. They didn't think she could carry a pregnancy on the show.

    It wasn't a planned pregnancy, I don't believe. It sounds like she miscarried fairly early into the pregnancy.

    I feel so sad for her Whens he was in India picking up Zoey, she started to bleed, and after much discussion with her doctor, they decided she needed to come home So she had to fly home without Bill, Will, and Zoey She wasn't able to spend that time bonding with her new daughter, she didn't get to watch Will and Zoey get to know each other, or be the one to bring her home- all those moments which meant so much to her with Will. And now in these first months with her new daughter, she's stuck doing chemotherapy and being sick I hate cancer

    How horrible. I love their show and they are both so strong, I hope that will carry them through this and she will be well.

    I see they are going to cover the cancer on their show.
