Julia Louis-Dreyfus has marked her last day of chemotherapy by sharing a home video that her children made for her.
The Veep and Seinfeld star revealed her breast cancer diagnosis last September with an impassioned appeal to the US government about universal health care.
Louis-Dreyfus posted a statement at the time that read: “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one”, before adding: “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.”
Over the weekend, the star shared a video that her sons made for her to celebrate her last day of chemo. It sees her two young sons lip-syncing to Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’. See that below.
It has been announced that Veep will come to an end after its seventh season, which has been expected to air at some point in 2018.
HBO revealed that Louis-Dreyfus “received her diagnosis the day after the Emmys” in 2017. The network also stated it “will adjust the production as needed.”
“Our love and support go out to Julia and her family at this time,” HBO said in a statement. “We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of Veep.”
