"I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy," Arnold said in a statement, according to TV Guide
. "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 and Klein recently adopted their children Will, 3, from China and daughter Zoey, 2, from India. Arnold did not reveal any further details about the type of cancer she is fighting.
"Jen has achieved so many great things," Klein said to People magazine earlier this year.
"We are so in love with each other and supportive of each other that we are going to be ok. Few people are so lucky to have what we do, from the moment you meet that one person and everything that you do together, everything that you add to that relationship is exciting as well. We are up for challenges."
Arnold works at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston and Klein owns his own sales, training, and telecommunications business in New York.
"We hope to inspire kids with new diagnoses of spondylo-epiphyseal dysplasia (dwarfism) and let them and their parents know that they can have fulfilled lives," Arnold says on the TLC website
. "We have limitations, but we all have limitations. We want kids to know they can find love and do what they want to do in life."
