Julia Louis-Dreyfus battles against breast cancer in new Instagram post

Los Angeles Times

Julia Louis-Dreyfus' battle with breast cancer is getting ferocious as the 56-year-old actress took to Instagram Thursday with a fierce and funny selfie.

"Chemo #2 finito. We are NOT [messing] around here," Louis-Dreyfus wrote in a caption accompanying a photo of herself wearing a black hoodie, aviator sunglasses and a drawn-on mustache.

Louis-Dreyfus went on to quote some particularly apt Katy Perry lyrics that seem to be serving as inspiration for the actress, thanks in no small part to an amazing video made by "Veep" costars Timothy Simons and Tony Hale.

"I’ve got the eye of the tiger. The Fighter dancing through the fire cuz I am a champion and you’re going to hear me ROAR," Louis-Dreyfus wrote, going on to thank Simons and Hale, as well as Perry herself, for their support and inspiration.

Three weeks ago, the "Seinfeld" star announced her diagnosis via Instagram, acknowledging that one in eight women get breast cancer.
"Today, I'm the one," she wrote.

Louis-Dreyfus is a Northwestern University alumna.  Her youngest son, Charlie Hall, plays for the Northwestern University basketball team.
