She was misdiagnosed at first!

Abby Lee Miller underwent an emergency surgery on her spinal cord in April because of severe pain in her back and neck. However, the doctors who previously had diagnosed the woman with a spinal infection couldn’t believe their eyes. It was cancer instead. Moreover, it was one of the most aggressive types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – Burkitt’s lymphoma.

Burkitt’s lymphoma affects the lymphatic system and is considered the fastest growing human cancer. The patient with this cancer has overall one to two weeks of life if it is not treated. Fortunately, Burkitt’s lymphoma has about 90% cure rate in developed countries, making Abby Lee’s chances of survival really good.
