• Abby Lee Miller of 'Dance Moms' announces she's cancer-free


    PENN HILLS, Pa. - It's been a tough couple of years for Abby Lee Miller, the local star of "Dance Moms" on Lifetime, but it looks like she's making a comeback.

    Miller told People this week that she's officially cancer-free.

    The Penn Hills woman has been battling Burkitt lymphoma and recently posted on Instagram that it should have been diagnosed sooner than it was.

    “I pushed through because I feel like I have more to do,” she told People. “I want to be an executive producer. I have three other shows and a cartoon that I’ve created. I want to do what I really do — I create. I can make something magical and wonderful out of nothing. I do it every week.”


    Miller became a star as the center of the show that followed her Abby Lee Dance Company's Junior Elite Competition Team. Her occasional clashes with her students’ mothers made for compelling television and launched several spinoffs.

    Miller is expected to talk more about her battle with cancer during the upcoming season of "Dance Moms."
