Julia Louis-Dreyfus shares selfie after second round of chemo

After revealing her breast cancer diagnosis last month, Seinfeld actor Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she is "not f---ing around" when it comes to treatment.

The star of the satirical series Veep, took to Instagram to share a picture to signify the completion of her second round of chemotherapy this month.

"Chemo #2: finito. We are NOT f--ing around here. '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," she wrote alongside a snap of herself sporting a drawn-on moustache.

Emmy winning Louis-Dreyfus also thanked Katy Perry by quoting her 2013 hit song Roar, as well as her Veep co-stars Tony Hale and Timothy Simons for being "hilarious and loving inspiration" during her treatment.

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. She also used her platform to actively call for better universal health care.

"1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one," Louis-Dreyfus wrote on Twitter.

"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."

In September HBO also told People in a statement that Louis-Dreyfus learned that she had developed breast cancer one day after she won her sixth consecutive Emmy, setting the record for the most wins in the same role and series.
