The mom and ‘Little Couple’ star is fighting stage 3 choriocarcinoma like a champ, thanks to support from her family. Each day, she is inspired by her toddlers’ constantly upbeat attitude — and she even shared the adorable way her kids make her smile even when treatment gets rough.
Dr. Jennifer Arnold is undergoing chemotherapy treatments for her rare form of uterine cancer, choriocarcinoma, and her precious kids, 3-year-old Will and 2-year-old Zoey are the driving forces helping her stay strong and positive. She and her husband Bill Klein are taking advantage of every one of her well days to share family time and go on relaxing trips together, like a mini-getaway to the beach!

Jen is open and honest about the ups and downs that are coming with her treatment, and savoring the good days — and she’s truly inspiring others.
