AceShowbiz - Abby Lee Miller won't let her illness keep her away from enjoying the sunshine. After completing her fifth round of chemotherapy in her fight against non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the "Dance Moms" alum was spotted out and about in Los Angeles on Tuesday, July 31.
The dance instructor looked unrecognizable due to her illness. She has lost over 100 pounds due to the cancer treatment. During her outing, she sported a pink V-neck tee and a pair of black shorts and she drove herself around her rehab facility on an electric wheelchair. She completed it with a baseball cap, covering her head as she lost most of her hair due to chemotherapy.
Even though Abby seemed weak that day, she still wanted to let fans know that she's doing okay amid her battle. Just a day before, she posted on Instagram a picture of her smiling brightly during a physical therapy session. "Monday morning on the mat. I've got this week like that!!!" she wrote alongside the picture.
Abby was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma back in April, just one day after undergoing surgery for what was initially thought to be spinal infection. "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," Dr. Hooman M. Melamed previously revealed.
After the 2nd surgery, My back is finally on the mend. I just wish the top section & bottom would hurry along too! I had 52 staples perfectly aligned and now a bunch of crazy stitches are holding my neck & lumbar region together! #abbyleemiller #abbylee #dancemoms @hoomanmelamedmd #aldc #aldcla #spjne #disc
She has been keeping her fans updated on each step in her journey to recovery. In early July, she shared a photo of her back and captioned it with, "After the 2nd surgery, my back is finally on the mend." She added, "I just wish the top section & bottom would hurry along too! I had 52 staples perfectly aligned and now a bunch of crazy stitches are holding my neck & lumbar region together!"
