'Dance Moms' Star Abby Lee Miller Was Released From Halfway House And Stays Strong In Her Battle Against Cancer
Sometimes, life forces you to fight to stay in this world. But it is always your choice: to strive for the win or to accept the loss. Abby Lee Miller is a natural fighter, and it comes as no surprise that no matter how hard life beats her – she will stay strong. Abby Lee got diagnosed with cancer but believes in recovery.
Problems with the law
The Dance Moms star, Abby Lee Miller was released from her halfway house, where she had been serving her prison time, a month ago. In case you don’t know, she was sentenced to one year and a day in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud in May 2017. Abby Lee celebrated the end of her sentence and posted a black and white photo of her saying “time’s up!”
Despite the good news, Miller faced even more terrifying trouble than the jail – cancer. The American dance instructor was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer which starts in your white blood cells (lymphocytes). Unfortunately, Abby Lee cannot yet feel the taste of freedom, as she is fighting the disease in the hospital.
At first, Abby Lee Miller was falsely diagnosed with a spinal infection and underwent emergency surgery. However, her condition turned out to be lymphoma. The star undergoes sessions of chemotherapy and counts days before her true freedom. Although she has never been married and doesn’t have children, Abby Lee has strong support which helps her to keep smiling and believing.
My dear friend flew in to LA from North Carolina today just to surprise me! It was so great to see this gorgeous girl again! It’s important not to get busy with everyday life and lose touch with those who are truly your friends through all the rough times! Love you @michelle_msda and thanks to @itsjojosiwa and @jessalynnsiwa for arranging all the festivities!!! #dancemoms #aldcalways #aldc #aldcla #abbyleeisfree
What are the chances?
Lymphoma is a very dangerous type of cancer, as there are no known risk factors and preventative measures. If not treated timely, cancer can spread to different parts of the lymphatic system and even other parts of the body. Depending on the stage and type of lymphoma, the survival rate is approximately 60-70%.
We believe that Abby Lee Miller can make it through the disease and finally live her life freely and happily. We pray for her recovery!
