Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller is currently battling cancer. On Tuesday, while at the hospital, the star received two special guests.


According to Instagram, her students Elliana Walmsley and Maesi Caes came to visit. Judging by the caption on the image, the star was uplifted by the company.

Abby Lee Miller, 51, was preliminarily diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma in April. This was after she received emergency surgery on her back.

Earlier in July, she completed her fifth round of chemotherapy. This week, she was visited in hospital by Dance Moms alums Elliana Walmsley and Maesi Caes.

Caes shared her own special tribute on Instagram where she added the same picture and another one of just her and Miller. She wrote, ‘HERO ~ an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. Miss Abby, thank you for being my hero.’

‘I guess it doesn't matter where I am or what I'm doing. The kids always migrate right toward me! I guess I'm more fun than their moms! LOL!’

This wasn't the first time that Miller has received a visit from her young dancers. Walmsley also visited her at the hospital last week.

At the time, Miller had posted a picture of her and Walmsley posing for the camera. Walmsley shared the same photo and another one where the dance teacher held her foot up.


She wrote, ‘A very glum afternoon quickly turned BRIGHT seeing the BEAUTIFUL @therealabbylee! Loved chatting with her about old times, new times and future times!!!!’

The student joked that a visit wouldn't be complete without her getting a private lesson. Burkitt lymphoma is a form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.


Her diagnosis came about a month after she was transferred from the FCI Victorville prison in California to a halfway house in Long Beach. Miller was sentenced to one year and one day in prison followed by two years of supervised release in May 2017.

The reality star had pleaded guilty to the charge of concealing bankruptcy assets. She also confessed to one count of not reporting an international monetary transaction.
