“Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller has hit a major milestone in her road to recovery from life-threatening cancer that required her to undergo back surgery last year.
The 52-year-old has completed her chemotherapy and is now working to regain her ability to walk, Dearly reported.
And Miller has been making some big strides — literally. With the help of physical therapy, the reality star managed to get up and start walking again.
When doctors told Miller she may never walk again, she set a lofty goal. According to an insider close to her, the cancer survivor said that she wanted to dance again:
“Her prognosis is bleak, but she is vowing to beat this and not only walk, but dance again.”
Now, it seems Miller has accomplished her goal.
On Wednesday, the star showed off some of her dance skills in a video on Instagram. She appeared to be in physical therapy when it was filmed.
Miller captioned the clip:
Back to dancing, one step at a time.
Port de bras
The dance instructor was flooded with encouraging comments from fans who admired her strength to keep fighting.
One Instagram user wrote:
I love that you don’t give up although I’m sure there have been times that you wanted to.
After all you’ve been through, it’s unthinkable. But you are truly an inspiration and praying for your full recovery. No one deserves it more.
Despite her struggles, Miller is set to return to her reality show roots for season eight of “Dance Moms,” she confirmed.
The new season has been named “Dance Moms: Ressurection” and will premiere on June 4.
