Eleven-time Emmy victor Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who revealed in September that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer, offered an update on how her treatment is going.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday (19Oct17), Julia shared that she has now finished a second round of chemotherapy, and cited a lyric from Katy Perry's 2013 tune Roar as a major source of inspiration.

"Chemo #2: finito. We are NOT f--ing around here".

The 56-year-old revealed in a letter posted to Twitter that she was one of the one in eight women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Blast hits Kabul mosque, several dead
The blast took place inside Imam Zamam Mosque in Dholana district of Ghor province in western Kabul as per AFP . Local police officials present at the spot said that the explosion claimed the lives of at least civilians.

She then thanked Perry along with her "Veep" co-stars, Tony Hale and Timothy Simons "for their hilarious and loving inspiration".

"The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union". As sweet and amusing as it is, it's also hard to get through the whole thing with a dry eye. And, because it is Louis-Dreyfus-who's taken home six consecutive Emmy wins for best actress in a comedy-she did it all while wearing huge aviators and a draw-on mustache.

Other celebs made sure to send love Julia's way following her post.
