In September last year, our favourite television president, one Julia Louis-Dreyfus, revealed that she had breast cancer. She posted on social media, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.”

In the same post, however, she also said, “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union.”
Julia, with husband Brad Hall and sons, Henry and Charlie Hall.
She showed just how glorious and supportive her family and team was throughout her treatment, documenting her courageous fight as well as those who helped her through.
She posted “Chemo #2” image for starters, quoting Katy Perry’s Roar, followed by a video of co-stars Tony Hale and Timothy Simons, lip-syncing the song for her, complete with dance moves and all, kicking cancer’s butt.
But the lip-syncing didn’t end there.
Thursday marked Julia’s final day of chemo and to celebrate, her sons lip-synced to none other than Michael Jackson’s Beat It.

She wrote, “My beauty boys @henryhallmusic @charlie_hall made this for me today... Pretty swell, right?"
Pretty swell indeed!
We can’t think of a better and more fitting song for Henry and Charlie Hall to have sung for their mom, telling cancer to beat it, marking her last day of chemo.
