The dance coach posted a photo that would make her fans emotional as she underwent an emergency surgery.


Abby Lee Miller shared the snap from her hospital bed a few weeks after emergency surgery following her cancer diagnosis. AmoMama got more info from Daily Mail.

The reality star looked like she was sleeping in the photo since her eyes were closed and she laid her head on a pillow that had the words, “Save Those Tears For Your Pillow.” She also wrote in the caption:

“Practice what you preach!”


The words on the pillow as a phrase that Abby told her students on the reality show, Dance Moms. She had been recently released from Victorville, CA prison and has kept her fans up to date on social media regarding her emergency procedure last month.

Last week, the 45-year-old let the world see what surgery looked like as she posted a grisly snap of her back, which had dozens of staples on it as well as a thumbs up. She penned:

“This gives a whole new meaning to being stabbed in the back!”


On Sunday, she shared a more positive post with a black and white picture of herself and said, “Keep Your Chin Up!”


Abby had been preliminarily diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which is a cancer of the lymph nodes. After the operation, her doctor, Hooman M. Melamed, told People through a rep that her patient is “looking good” but is “not out of the woods yet.”

She was actually left paralyzed from the neck down on Tuesday and needs to have another spinal surgery. But Dr. Melamed has said that she could already move tiny parts of her body.

“She has a lot more movement in her arms, legs, and toes, which is a very good sign.”

The surgery took almost five hours and Dr. Melamed needed to make an 18-inch incision. She had to remove the back part of several vertebrae in order to relieve pressure from Abby’s spinal cord.

An oncologist has been brought to the case so that they will know the next steps required regarding chemo and radiation.
