Doctors reveal that she could have died from the deadly disease.


As reported by ET Online, the Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller has been undergoing rigorous treatment for at least 2 major health issues, and she recently shared what kept her going.

After sharing a photo of her 18-inch incision recently, Miller returned to social media to post another moving picture for her fans and followers.

In the photo, Miller is seen sleeping on her back in a hospital bed, wrapped in a white blanket from neck to toe. Her brown hair looked open and unkempt as the dancer lay sleeping without her signature smile.

Miller rested her head on a Dance Moms pillow, which carried one of her most significant quotes from the show.


The pillow read ‘Save those tears for your pillow’ followed by Miller’s name. She captioned the picture by writing that she intended to practice what she had preached, and keep her chin up.

According to Self, Miller had to undergo a major back surgery after a shooting pain in the arm led to a paralysis-like state of her body from the neck down.

To revive her mobility, the doctors had to remove parts of multiple vertebrae in a surgery called a multi-level laminectomy.

The orthopedic surgeon who performed the surgery, Dr. Hoorman Melamed, shared that the operation was successful, and although her body is adjusting well to the spinal treatment, recouping will take time.

The doctor also sent some of Miller’s tissues for testing, after which it was revealed that she had Burkitt Lymphoma. This type of cancer which is a non-Hodgkin’s type and impacts the lymphatic system.


Miller has been going through rigorous chemotherapy for the lymphoma, hoping to eradicate her cancer and resume her normal life.

Dr. Melamed also revealed that Miller is likely to need another surgery to treat her spinal complications. However, the recent surgery had given her arms and legs a lot of relief and the freedom to move.

The doctor shared that if Miller had postponed her treatment any further, she could have died from the severe medical issues.
