Miller was diagnosed with cancer just a few weeks after being released from prison to a halfway house. The former Dance Moms star had been incarcerated for hiding income from the IRS. Radar exclusively revealed on March 27 that the former Dance Moms star had been transferred from Victorville federal prison to a halfway house in Van Nuys, California. But just days later, Miller's medical crisis began!

On April 17, Miller went into surgery for a multi-level laminectomy at about 1 a.m. after she experienced "excruciating neck pain" and weakness in her arm. Dr. Hooman M. Melamed told PEOPLE that she had become paralyzed from the neck down and she was extremely close to death moments after she was rushed to Cedar Sinai Marina Del Rey Hospital.

Miller was later diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, a type of cancer, and since, then she's been terrified! "She’s strong, but not good. It’s bad and very aggressive,” a source close to the notorious reality teacher exclusively told Radar. "She is devastated because she has just been released, and now this. She feels cursed.”

According to the Radar insider, Miller is even getting her will written in case she dies. "From what I understand, she is getting her business affairs in order. She has no family. Everything will go to her close inner circle," the source said.

Within the last year, Miller spent eight and a half months in prison after pleading guilty to not reporting an international monetary transaction and one count of concealing bankruptcy assets. Then she went from a halfway house to the hospital. She shared an Instagram photo of herself looking haggard and terrified in a hospital bed while hooked up to an IV. In the caption, Miller 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 prayers and love!"

Days later, Miller shared a horrific social media photo of what appeared to be a massive stretch of stitches on her back, which she captioned, "This gives a whole new meaning to being stabbed in the back!" Radar's source noted that despite her black humor, "Abby Lee’s trying to stay strong but she can’t get through the day without crying. She doesn’t seem to think there’s much hope."

Burkitt's lymphoma is a terrifying diagnosis. It's a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes. Symptons for the Burkitt variety usually develop quickly, but the cancer can often be treated with intensive chemo-immunotherapy, the American Cancer Society says. While Miller‘s cancer crisis will likely exempt her from having to serve the remainder of her prison sentence in the L.A. halfway house, that's not much of a silver lining. Miller is in the battle of her life and is expected to undergo aggressive chemotherapy. The source told Radar, "She doesn’t think she’s going to make this." We pay for juicy info!
