Even though she is swamped with season eleven rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars on ABC, Jennifer Grey is still making time to keep her fans updated via Twitter and a few short interviews here and there. Jennifer’s latest tweets tell us all about her dance partner, Derek Hough and the cancer scare she has recently been through. Keep reading to hear everything Jennifer shared with her fans!

Some may say that Jennifer Grey can thank her clean bill of health to Dancing With the Stars on ABC as the 40 year old star of the 1987 hit film Dirty Dancing recently had what she thought was a benign tumor removed from her neck. After being checked out to make sure she was healthy enough to compete on the hit dance show, it was discovered that Jennifer had a lump in her neck, but her doctors assured her it was benign. Only after having the lump removed it was discovered that it was not benign at all, but it was indeed cancerous.

Since the procedure, Jennifer is healthy and ready to dance her booty off. She even dishes a little bit on twitter about her partner, Derek Hough, tweeting “Wow. Thanks so much for all the well wishes. I’m having a blast. Dancing with Derek Hough is pure heaven.” and “Thanks for all the good wishes. I’m nervous, but very excited. Last time I danced this much, Ronald Reagan was President.” And how exactly is Derek feeling? Ina recent tweet from Derek, he stated “Good times, we’re gonna have some fun…” Anyone else get the feeling this pair is going to be a lot of fun to watch? I can’t wait!
