Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced that she had breast cancer in September of last year. It was only a day after she landed her sixth Emmy for her performance as Selina Meyer on the HBO show “Veep.”
She broke the news on her Twitter account writing, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today I’m the one.
“The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union.
The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”
Since then, Louis-Dreyfus has been relatively private about her cancer battle.
She’s posted a few updates for her fans, but nothing more than that.
In her second update, Louis-Dreyfus posted the above photo with the caption, “Chemo #2: finito. We are NOT f*****g around here.” She added some special thanks at the end.
Well, after many long months, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has finally finished chemotherapy.
Her sons, 35-year-old Henry Hall and 20-year-old Charlie Hall, sent her a video to celebrate.
Louis-Dreyfus posted the video on her Instagram, thanking them for their support. It’s a silly rendition of “Beat it” by Michael Jackson.
“My beauty boys @henryhallmusic @charlie_hall made this for me today, my last day of chemotherapy. Pretty swell, right? Ain’t they sweet?” she wrote in the caption.
Through her treatment, Louis-Dreyfus has continued working.
She’s been filming the final season of “Veep,” while finding time to spend with her family.
Now that her chemotherapy is over, we’re excited to see what the star has in store for us next. She’s already linked to two of the greatest comedy series in history, “Veep” and “Seinfeld.”
It’s always great to see someone finish chemo, and hopefully doctors declare her cancer-free soon.
The funny video by Louis-Dreyfus’ sons made this news even more lighthearted.
