    Julia Louis-Dreyfus is more than ready to beat cancer.

    Less than a month after revealing to fans that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus updated fans on her health and revealed she's already been through two rounds of chemotherapy.

    "Chemo #2 finito. We are NOT f--king around here," Louis-Dreyfus shared on Instagram Thursday evening before quoting the lyrics to Katy Perry's hit song "Roar."

    "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."

    Back on Sept. 28, Julia revealed her breast cancer diagnosis to fans on social media.

    "1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one," she announced. "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."

    E! News had also learned Louis-Dreyfus received her diagnosis just one day after the 2017 Emmys. Writers will continue to work on the final season of "Veep" and production has been adjusted to accommodate her treatment.
