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.”
