Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller has been candid about her battle with Burkitt Lymphoma, sharing the ups and downs of her journey. Now, the 52-year-old is taking it a step further by sharing the scar she lives with following emergency surgery one year ago.
Abby took to Instagram to post a powerful message about her treatment and show the image of the scar she is left with that extends from her neck all the way down her back.

“One year ago today ~ I underwent emergency surgery for an infection in my spine. This mass/tumor choking my spinal cord turned out to be Burkitt Lymphoma. I endured ten rounds of chemo therapy (each lasting 6 days with 4/ 24hr bags pumping poison into my body ending with a spinal tap in 3 spots, plus another shot of Chemo into my tailbone area up the spinal cord around my brain cavity) Ten times!

Following the ten rounds of chemo, Abby found herself still needing more work. “Another spine surgery was needed & I have one more still to go. I struggled thru months of physical therapy to learn to sit up again, to crawl and maybe with a miracle someday I’ll walk.”

She went on to question the process. “Why didn’t the ER Doctors on duty do their jobs? I came in twice with the same symptoms? Why didn’t somebody listen to me, the patient? I finally found the right team that’s why I lived to tell my story, I have a lot to say! Thank you to all wonderful top notch professionals who continue to help me heal. For those who missed it, misdiagnosed me, and the so called Federal “Doctor” who took me off medication cold turkey and the other ER “Doctor Hollywood” who told me to go home and take it easy for 10 days – STOP practicing! Please.”

Abby had trying to get her life back on track, when the ‘Dance Moms’ star found herself in the hospital shortly after being released from the halfway house where she had been staying since serving time for bankruptcy fraud. Abby first went to the doctor in April of  2018 with severe neck pain, which prompted emergency surgery. She was then diagnosed with non-Hodkin’s lymphoma. Since then, Miller has been documenting her journey with chemotherapy, rehab and overall health on her Instagram.

While Abby experienced her share of setbacks, she remained hopeful and positive and is set to be back to the set of Dance Moms later this year.
