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.

Alone at the time, the 40-year-old Good Morning America correspondent and mother of two young girls called her husband, actor Andrew Shue, who was away on business, and put him on speakerphone.
"Mr. Shue, are you driving?" the doctor asked.

Barbara Park, a former class clown who channeled her irreverence into the million-selling mishaps of grade schooler Junie B. Jones, has died. She was 66.
The author died Friday after a long battle with ovarian cancer, according to a statement released Sunday by Random House Books for Young Readers. Park was a longtime resident of Scottsdale, Ariz., where she lived with her husband, Richard, and raised two sons.
Starting in 1992, Park wrote more than 30 illustrated chapter books about the smart-mouthed girl with an ungrammatical opinion of everybody – her parents, her teachers, her friends and her classmate and enemy for life, May, who is so mean she won't even acknowledge Junie's middle initial (which stands for Beatrice: "Only I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all," Junie warned).

On Friday, November 15, San Francisco became Gotham. The city did not do this for Comic-Con, nor to film a new movie. The city did this to fulfill the dreams of a five-year-old boy named Miles with leukemia.
Miles hails from Tulelake, in Northern California. He was diagnosed with leukemia at just 18 months old, but ended treatments in June. Fortunately, he is now in remission, and ready to take on his next big, brave mission: becoming Batkid.

"You might miss a life-changing moment because you weren't paying attention. I started paying attention and I ended up meeting two people."
