Abby Lee Miller takes to social media to share a picture of her enjoying the summer sun in LA amid her cancer battle.
Abby Lee Miller might be battling with cancer but she is not letting it take away the small happiness of life. Taking to Instagram on Saturday (July 7) the 'Dance Mom' alum shared a picture of her enjoying the summer in LA. Reclining her wheelchair, Abby was spotted enjoying the summer sun.
"It’s Lit in LA! I have everything I need! Well almost, hey there @tiffanyhaddish where’s your Pool Boy? #abbyleemiller #dancemoms #abbylee#aldc #aldcla #spinesurgery" she captioned the picture. Ever since Abby was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma she has been updating her fans about her health and how the procedure has been going.
Recently Abby announced that she will be undergoing chemotherapy. She posted a picture looking right at the camera with a surprised expression. HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW...#abbyleemiller #dancemoms #aldc #aldcla#chemo" she captioned the picture. Fans were quick to send in messages of support as one wrote "get well soon", while another reminded her that "hair grows back".
Days after it was reported that the reality star was rushed to the hospital for an emergency surgery for what was considered to be a spinal infection, it was reported that she is suffering from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Dr. Hooman M. Melamed, who had also performed the surgery on Abby confirmed the news to People.
“It was not an infection, it was a type of a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – it’s a type of cancer,” he 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.”
A source close to Radar Online "her business affairs in order" as she is unsure of how her health will turn out following the chemotherapy she is currently undergoing. The source added that Abby wants to leave behind something for the people she met in prison and created a strong bond with.
“Abby Lee’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.
While she is reportedly trying to stay strong, there hasn't been a day when she had not cried. “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." However, looking at the recent images of Abby we can see her being strong and hopeful about the future.
