Jen Arnold can finally go home and be with her family. The Little Couple star announced that her cancer is in remission after a successful final chemotherapy session.
“I had my official last chemo treatment,” says Arnold, 39. “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,” she told People.
While she is on the mend now, the mom of two actually had a particularly rough time with her chemotherapy regimen. “It actually got harder as more time went on,” she said. “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 is a mom of two kids, Zoey, 2 and Will, 3, both of whom are adopted. Jen had a huge health scare which led to her diagnosis while she was in India adopting her daughter, according to People.
Through all of the grueling treatment, it was her husband, Bill Klein, that held everything together. “Bill knows when I’m not doing well and he takes such good care of me,” she says. “That was huge. That and enjoying watching my children play was a huge uplifting part of my treatment. With kids running around, you don’t have much time to feel sorry for yourself.”
We are so happy to hear Jen is doing better! How about you, HollyMoms?
