A special episode of Dance Moms airs to raise awareness for cancer – and specifically to honor Abby Lee’s 86-year-old mother who is battling stage four colon cancer. The episode shows the dancers performing at an August 2013 Dancers Care Foundation Benefit Competition (Starbound) in Atlantic City, N.J. When the public expresses interest in how her mother is feeling as of date, Abby responds on Instagram:
My mom, Mrs. Miller, is still fighting the fight! Please keep her in your prayers. Thank you for watching and caring.
