Neonatologist pediatrician Jennifer Arnold, half of TLC's "The Little Couple", was stricken with choriocarcinoma after traveling to India to adopt the couple's second child. She started to bleed while on the trip and the bleeding wouldn't stop, and she had to return to the US while her husband Bill proceeded with the adoption. It was discovered that Jen had become pregnant (something that it was thought couldn't happen) and miscarried, but the placenta turned malignant. This type of malignancy usually responds well to chemotherapy, but Jen's cancer was resistant and spread to her lungs, requiring life-threatening surgery in a person as small as Jen. She survived the surgery and is now undergoing intensive chemotherapy. The prognosis is good, but it is hard on a person as tiny as she is.
