Bill & Jen aren’t your typical couple. He is a serial entrepreneur and she is a board certified neonatologist. He received his bachelor degree from NYU and has consulted and generated millions in incremental revenue to companies like GE Healthcare, Siemens and Tyco Healthcare just to name a few. She received her bachelor degree from University of Miami, a Masters of Education from University of Pittsburgh and her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is now the Medical Director of a state-of-the-art simulation center at Texas Children’s Hospital and is a practicing physician at the largest NICU in the country. But that’s not what makes them unusual.
He stands at 4 feet and has a rare variation of skeletal dysplasia called Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia (or SED) and has had more than 20 surgeries. She stands at just 3 foot 2 has a similar, and also rare type of dwarfism called Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Type Strudwick, has had more than 30 surgeries – and yet this too is not what makes this couple unique!
Where they truly differentiate themselves from other people is in their ability to persevere through difficult times, triumph over adversity and all the while, find enthusiasm with every challenge that comes their way. And they do it together. A true power couple – that draw from each other to reach new heights in their careers and personal lives.
Together, Bill & Jen also lead interesting (and uniquely public) private lives: They are featured on TLC's docu-drama, The Little Couple, which follows their personal and professional lives and is now in it's 5th season! They have also appeared on television programs including Oprah, The Today Show, GMA, Dr. OZ, The Doctors, Wendy Williams, Anderson Cooper and CNN among others.
The show, which started nearly 4 years ago, has also proven to be an invaluable method to break down barriers and educate people around the country about people with disabilities. As the show continues in 2013, they will embark on their greatest adventure yet… parenthood.
What was supposed to be the happiest time of Dr. Jennifer Arnold’s life turned into her worst nightmare. In 2013 during the adoption of her and husband Bill Klein’s second child Zoey, from India, Dr. Arnold received the devastating news that she was battling a rare form of cancer. Knowing giving up wasn’t an option after hearing her Stage 3 diagnosis, she fought for her life with intense treatments and the tireless support of family, friends, colleagues and health professionals.
An advocate for spreading cancer awareness and supporting those on the road to recovery, Dr. Arnold shares her inspiring journey of survivorship that began half way around the world. Always a very career driven person, she realized she had to take a step back and determine what mattered most. Gaining a new appreciation for life, she quickly realized that it’s equally important to be “quality of life driven,” and learned to prioritize what’s most important for her family, herself and for her work. She gained a new perspective on “not sweating the small stuff” and at every turn, there was a valuable lesson as she gained a new appreciation for life. Her message is one of hope and shows that when life gets difficult, lessons become clearer and the meaning shines through.
