Abby Lee Miller is finding it hard to stay positive as she battles cancer. The 'Dance Mom' star is currently undergoing chemotherapy but she is reportedly finding it hard to keep a steady mind. “She has two more chemo sessions to go, but she’s in a really bad place — mentally and emotionally,” a source close to her told People. “She’s really losing it.”

This comes after Abby recently took a selfie from her hospital while she was being treated. She took to Instagram to thank her fans for their prayers and love. “So much gratitude and love for those who listened, those who looked deeper and those who leaped [sic] into action. So much more I wish I could say……about how quickly your life can change at the hands of others. Thanks for 🙏🏻❤”  she wrote. 

The news about her cancer diagnosis came one day after Abby had to undergo an emergency surgery for a spinal infection. Dr. Hooman M. Melamed, who had also performed the surgery on Abby confirmed the news to People at that time. 

“It was not an infection, it was a type of a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – it’s a type of cancer,” Dr Melamed said. "We’re getting an oncologist involved and we have to figure out what the next steps are as far as chemotherapy or radiation or more spine surgery. Depending on the tumor type, depending on the sensitivity of the tumor – it just depends on the type but I feel more than yes, she will undergo chemotherapy or radiation.”

Sources close to Abby told Radar Online that doctors doubted if she would be able to make it. At the same time, Abby was reportedly making preparation for her funeral. Abby's deciding who gets what in her will. She made a few friends in prison and she’d like to reward them. It’s a very sad, scary time for Abby Lee. She’s never felt so alone!" the source said.


“Abby Lee’s trying to stay strong but she can’t get through the day without crying,” added the source. “She doesn’t seem to think there’s much hope.” Ever since Abby revealed she her battle with cancer, all her fans have been there to support her with thoughtful words and prayers.
