Washington: American choreographer, Abby Lee Miller, has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer.

The ‘Dance Moms’ star recently underwent a spinal surgery for an infection but was then diagnosed with cancer.

She posted a picture of herself on Instagram in a hospital gown and wrote, “So much gratitude and love for those who listened,those who looked deeper and those who leapt into action. So much more I wish I could say……about how quickly your life can change at the hands of others. Thanks for #abbyleemiller #abbylee #aldc #aldcla #aldcalways #dancemoms #iwilldance.”

Miller’s spinal surgeon told E!online that the reality star likely has Burkitt lymphoma, a type of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and that pathology results are still pending. The doctor’s rep also said he’s unsure if the lymphoma has spread at this point.

The 51-year-old-star was shifted from a prison to a house last month after spending more than eight months in federal prison for concealing bankruptcy assets and not reporting an international monetary transaction. (ANI)
