One year ago today ~ I underwent emergency surgery for an infection in my spine. This mass/tumor choking my spinal cord turned out to be Burkitt Lymphoma. I endured ten rounds of chemo therapy (each lasting 6 days with 4/ 24hr bags pumping poison into my body ending with a spinal tap in 3 spots, plus another shot of Chemo into my tailbone area up the spinal cord around my brain cavity) Ten times! Another spine surgery was needed & I have one more still to go. I struggled thru months of physical therapy to learn to sit up again, to crawl and maybe with a miracle someday I’ll walk. Why didn’t the ER Doctors on duty do their jobs? I came in twice with the same symptoms? Why didn’t somebody listen to me, the patient? I finally found the right team that’s why I lived to tell my story, I have a lot to say! Thank you to all wonderful top notch professionals who continue to help me heal. For those who missed it, misdiagnosed me, and the so called Federal “Doctor” who took me off medication cold turkey and the other ER “Doctor Hollywood” who told me to go home and take it easy for 10 days - STOP practicing! Please

Besides chemotherapy, she also started physical therapy to get rid of her current health issues saying,

 I struggled thru months of physical therapy to learn to sit up again, to crawl and maybe with a miracle someday I’ll walk.

The former dancer also shared that her chemotherapy was very frustrating for her. From the beginning, she knew something was not going good on her health but the doctor didn't find any problem.

The owner of Reign Dance Productions said,

After experiencing lots of health issues, the dancing star also requested the doctors who misdiagnosed her to stop practicing medicine. 

For those who missed it, misdiagnosed me, and the so called Federal "Doctor" who took me off medication cold turkey and the other ER "Doctor Hollywood" who told me to go home and take it easy for 10 days - STOP practicing! Please.

The reality star also thanked medical professionals who helped her. 

As for her health condition, it is improving very nicely. She is supposed to star on the TLC series Dance Moms. The premiere date of the show is set to be in June 2019.
