In late September, just after she won her sixth consecutive Emmy for Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus revealed that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. At the time, she didn鈥檛 provide any further details on prognosis or potential treatment options, but now she鈥檚 updating the world on her status, and it鈥檚 clear she鈥檚 still got her humor and strength fully in tact.

鈥淐hemo #2: finito,鈥 she wrote on a selfie showing her in shades, a pulled-up hoodie, and a painted-on mustache.

鈥淲e are NOT f*cking around here,鈥 she continued. 鈥溾業鈥檝e got the eye of the tiger. The Fighter dancing through the fire cuz I am a champion and you鈥檙e going to hear me ROAR.'鈥 She went on to thank her Veep costars Tony Hale and Timothy Simons, and 鈥 yep 鈥 Katy Perry, whose song 鈥淩oar鈥 she quoted in her caption, for 鈥渢heir hilarious and loving inspiration.鈥

Later, she shared a video that revealed what that inspiration was.

In the clip, Hale, playing JLD, mimes beating up Simons, playing the role of cancer, as Perry鈥檚 鈥淩oar鈥 plays in the background. When they get to the chorus, they hold up signs with the lyrics on them: 鈥淵ou鈥檝e got the eye of the tiger, a fighter. You are a champion and we鈥檙e going to hear you roar.鈥

鈥淗ow lucky am I that these bozos have my back? What a moving inspiration to my day,鈥 she captioned the video. 鈥淚鈥檝e watched it a gazillion times. Thanks to @mrtonyhale @timothycsimons & @katyperry.鈥

Support for Louis-Dreyfus poured in on social media following her diagnosis, and she even got a super special shout-out from former Vice President Joe Biden. 鈥淲e Veeps stick together,鈥 Biden tweeted in the wake of the news in September, sharing a photo from a parody video they filmed for the 2014 White House Correspondents Dinner. 鈥淛ill and I, and all of the Bidens, are with you, Julia.鈥

HBO previously said that they would adjust Veep鈥榮 filming schedule for its seventh and final season as needed for its star鈥檚 treatment. Judging by her support network and her fierce attitude, Louis-Dreyfus has everything she needs to keep fighting through her treatments. We wish her all the best!
