In September, Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer and since then she’s been keeping fans updated on her journey. The actress just reached a major milestone by completing chemotherapy treatment and to celebrate, her sons made her a hilarious video.
Charlie and Henry Hall got a little help from Michael Jackson to make it happen, too! You see, her sons lip-synched and danced to Jackson’s “Beat It” and sent the video to their mom. She decided to share the video with the world on Instagram, and boy — are we glad she did!
This is too good not to see:
She captioned the post, “My beauty boys @henryhallmusic and @charlie_hall made this for me today, my last day of chemotherapy. Pretty swell, right? Ain’t they sweet?”
This is great material, and it’s no wonder Louis-Dreyfus wanted to share with everybody!
The “Veep” star first shared the news of her cancer diagnosis on Instagram by writing, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.” She regularly updates fans on her progress and posts videos of her incredible support system — her family, colleagues and friends.
There have been photos of her sharing sweet moments with loved ones, like this photo of her kissing her husband under the mistletoe on Christmas Eve:
She also recently posted about getting a blood transfusion as an “Xmas cocktail” of sorts:
She’s taking time to enjoy life’s little moments and “stopping to smell the flowers,” if you will:
And she’s proving that she’ll get by with a little help from her friends:
The actress has received support from her colleagues, as well. Since her diagnosis, “Veep” producers announced it would be halting production while the star underwent treatment.
“We’re obviously postponing production of the show — we were supposed to have started now — while she’s in treatment. The expectation is that we will shoot again. We have one more season we’re doing, which we’re incredibly excited about,” an executive producer of the show said at a press conference.
All in all, the actress is ready to kiss her cancer battle goodbye. Completing chemo is certainly a huge milestone!
