    Former "Dance Moms" reality TV star Abby Lee Miller has been diagnosed with cancer.

    Doctor Hooman Melamed tells People.com she contracted what they thought was a rare spinal infection and nearly died this week.

    The doctor says Miller went to a California emergency room, where her condition deteriorated and she became "paralyzed from the neck down." He says Miller underwent spinal surgery Tuesday and parts of some vertebrae were removed.

    It was determined Miller had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
