The Seinfeld vet and Veep star came loaded for bear: "I'm really good, I'm not just saying that", she said to cheers, before saying with a laugh, "Let's get this cancer sh** out of the way, bring on the questions".

Julia Louis-Dreyfus wanted to fight breast cancer "with a sense of humour".

But it's more than just inspiring to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus manage to work with such passion and still manage her cancer treatments.

She said: "I'm grateful to be alive".

Now that she's officially cancer-free, she's back to work on Veep and ready to get back in the swing of things. Production was halted as she underwent treatment that included chemotherapy and surgery.

The Titans get their bye when they return from London before a visit to Dallas and a home game November 11 against New England. In rushing, Alex Collins ran for 54 yards and two touchdowns in 19 carries while Gus Edwards added 42 yards in 10 carries.

Once Louis-Dreyfus made decision to go public, she also decided that she would take of the approach of attacking her situation with a sense of humor. "I very much considered the notion, as someone battling this disease, the idea that I might not have health insurance - which I do thanks to my great union - is completely terrifying".

In September 2017, Louis-Dreyfus shared her news with a short note on social media.

After Julia had her final chemotherapy session in January, she shared a video her sons Henry, 26, and 21-year-old Charlie - who she has with husband Brad Hall - had recorded to support her, featuring them lip syncing to Michael Jackson's "Beat It" and the actress thought it was the flawless tribute.

She'll also receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on October 21 in Washington, D.C. "I believed it before, but now I really know it".

Going on to talk further about filming the last series of the hit show, Louis-Dreyfus continued: "I am [feeling melancholy], it's bittersweet, I adore these people and I adore the show and what we've been able to achieve with it".
