Every teenage girl who dances has been following the hit Lifetime show Dance Moms since it started in July of 2011. The show has brought fame and fortune to Abby Lee Miller, the dance teacher.

Miller is known for being insanely strict, and making the girls on her team cry from her critiques and comments. She shows them a lot of through love, and it pays off. Although she is tough on the outside, she’s been going through a lot more than most would know on the inside.

According to USA Today, in May 2017, Miller was convicted of bankruptcy fraud, and sentenced to one year in California Victorville Federal Correctional Institution. However, she was released early, and only served an eight month sentence.

With being released early, Miller was required to stay in a halfway house, and put on probation for two years. Early into her stay, she was rushed to the hospital to have an emergency spinal surgery.

Miller was diagnosed with a form of lymphoma called Burkitt lymphoma. According to lymphoma.org,  the cancer starts in B-cells (immune cells). Burkitt lymphoma is the fastest growing human tumor. It is quickly fatal if left untreated.

Dancing may be out of reach, but Miller has hopes to walk again after her last procedure. Doctors told her that even with rehab, there is a big possibility that she will never walk again.

Miller is in high spirits, and staying positive. She has the support of her dancers, her co-workers, friends, family, and people across America.

On Instagram Miller shared a picture with two of her students that was captioned, “I guess it doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing the kids always migrate right towards me.”

She also told Instagram followers, “Just put one foot in front of the other & soon you’ll be walking out the door!”

With surgeries, rehab, and positive thoughts, Miller will hopefully make a full recovery.
