At the end of September, award-winning actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced that she was battling breast cancer. The 56-year-old told her fans via Twitter about her health scare.
She said, "1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one." Unfortunately, breast cancer is extremely common and millions of women around the world are affected by it.
Julia continued, "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.”
After her announcement, the eight-time Emmy-winning actress received a plethora of support from fans and co-workers. Now, after receiving treatment, Louis-Dreyfus is back to work.
The actress posted a picture to her Instagram account on Thursday about her second round of chemotherapy. On the caption, she quoted Katy Perry's "Roar," saying that she would rise up and fight this battle.
The photo was referencing a video that Tony Hale and Timothy Simons created for the actress. The two lip-synced Katy Perry's song and showed their support.
After the outpour of support, Julia is back to work. On Thursday, the actress shared a photo from her coworker of the new "Veep" script.
She said, "It was a fantastic script read by an amazing cast. Huge comfort and joy!"
