Vowing to fight her rare form of cancer, Jen Arnold, star of TLC's The Little Couple, has decided to let cameras document her ordeal.
"TLC has chronicled Bill and Jen's lives since 2009 and at their request, we will be following them through this challenge," a TLC spokesperson tells PEOPLE. "Jen is a doctor and teacher and she saw this as an opportunity to educate and possibly help, through sharing her story."
Arnold, 39, is a neonatologist at Texas Children's Hospital where she serves as medical director of the Pediatric Simulation Center and an assistant professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine.
She is "currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy," she told PEOPLE Thursday.

The Houston-based neonatologist, 39, and her husband Bill Klein, 38, are parents to son Will, 3, whom they adopted from China, and daughter Zoey, 2, whom they recently brought home from India.

Move over Sister Wives, there's a new polygamous family in town.
My Five Wives is TLC's latest foray into the world of polygamy. The one-hour special profiles Brady Williams, his five wives and 24 children, who all live together on a large family property outside of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Brady and his wives maintain that they practice polygamy not only for religious reasons, but also out of mutual love and commitment to each other. They are estranged from their church and therefore shunned by their community and many family members, but the Williams family believes the sacrifices are worth it.

Goodbye milking cows, hello Hollywood.
Breaking Amish is back, and an all-new cast is leaving behind their old-fashioned communities to test out modern life in Los Angeles – and decide whether to remain part of the "English," or return to their Amish and Mennonite roots.
In this exclusive first look at the new season of the hit TLC show (below), the new cast members are still at home but explain to cameras and family members why they feel compelled to step out of their current lives to try something new – at the risk of being shunned by their families.
"It's just really hard to feel like you're trapped in a box," says Lizzie, 21. "No matter what you do, you can't get out."

They had vows, a cake, a camouflage gown and all their family and friends present, but Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars Mama June (June Shannon, 33) and Sugar Bear, 41, won't say whether they've actually gotten married – or just recommitted to each other.
On Sunday, friends and family, including Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson, 7) and big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs, joined the duo in their Georgia backyard for a ceremony to celebrate their love, followed by a rowdy family barbecue on what happens to be Cinco de Mayo.
"The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it," says June. "I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."

When it comes to swimming, the Duggars have it covered.
On a recent marriage retreat to Puerto Rico filmed for their reality show, TLC's 19 Kids & Counting, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar decided to go snorkeling. But not in typical bathing suits. (Watch a clip below.)
"In society, sometimes there's this idea that we cover up at certain times and then we go to the beach and wear our underclothes," Michelle tells PEOPLE. "Bathing suits are pretty and colorful but it's not our thinking that it is okay to be naked some places and not other places."
The solution is to find something "I feel comfortable in," Michelle says. "I am not feeling exposed in the ways I am uncomfortable with." For the trip, which airs Tuesday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC, that meant covering up in swimwear by WholesomeWear.com.
