Abby Lee Miller is back and she is a fighter. 

'Dance Moms' season 8 premiered on Lifetime on Tuesday night, and the 52-year-old dance coach is back with a bang after going through a whirlwind of issues starting from her prison stint, to battling cancer that left her in a wheelchair. 

This new season revealed the newest kids of the ALDC as they battle it out to become the best dancers and earn a coveted spot on Miller's elite team while the mothers fight battles of their own. Before the show began, the series aired a documentary titled 'Dance Moms: The Return of Abby' that featured Miller's recovery and her return to work. 

In the documentary, they showed Miller in the hospital after her surgery undergoing chemotherapy. The dance coach revealed that there was a point where she felt she would never walk again and would rather die.

"I wanted to die. I did. And if I lose dance, there is no point in being here. I felt like I lost my purpose and I needed to find it." After being an instructor and teaching dance for over 35 years, Miller revealed without it she did not know what she would do. 

She further revealed that after her surgery was a success she was shocked when she got to know that she had to undergo chemo. Then there was also the added heartbreak when she heard that she might never walk again even with chemo. "I'm not going to keep doing the cancer treatment if I can't walk," 

Miller is a fighter, and she fought her way through her cancer and was back in the studio right in time for Dance Moms and it was like nothing had changed. "I have had a miserable year. It almost killed me. I will teach again. I will create a winning team again and I hope and pray that I will walk again."
