Abby Lee Miller can take on anything that stands in her way — but that doesn’t mean she isn’t “devastated” about her non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis.
A source tells Us Weekly that the Dance Moms star’s doctors “are not sure yet how aggressive it is or which stage it is,” but notes that this specific lymphoma is treatable and is a “good cancer to get, if you have to get it.”
As we reported, the reality star underwent emergency surgery on her spinal cord after complaining of pain for a couple of weeks.
Originally believed to be an infection, doctors confirmed that Miller had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma — a type of cancer that begins in the lymphatic system.
The source adds that the dance instructor, who was staying in a halfway house following her early release from prison on March 27, is putting on a “brave face” as she faces another huge life hurdle, sharing:
“Abby is devastated, but is strong and trying to put on a brave face. She is still at [the hospital], and they are seeing what the next steps are. She will make it through this.”
Just like she made it through 366 days in prison for bankruptcy fraud — not to mention 6 seasons of Dance Moms.
Keep fighting, girl!!
