Alicia Witt Shares Moment She Completed Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer

Alicia Witt is ready to share more details about her breast cancer journey.

The actress, who last month revealed to her 147,000 followers on Instagram that she’d had a mastectomy, has now shared photos and videos of the moment she struck a gong in hospital to celebrate the end of her chemotherapy sessions:

“Just a little over 2 months ago, I had my last round of chemical therapy prior to my mastectomy,” she captioned the post which also showed a photo of her holding a chemotherapy “Certificate of Completion.”

She went on to thank her team of doctors at Tennessee Oncology and the “tiny crew of angels” who helped her get through the treatment, assisted with her therapy cap to help prevent hair loss and kept her diagnosis private:

“I’m so grateful to all those along the way during treatment who honoured me by protecting my privacy during these months and grateful to help share that these caps can truly play a huge role in allowing a patient to reveal her journey on her own time, when she is ready.”


Alicia, whose parents were tragically found dead in their Massachusetts home in December last year, described how important it was to her to keep her cancer journey private:

“For me, this was such a needed part of my healing – particularly given the horribly public tragedy that had happened in our family just as I was beginning my treatments.”

Alicia explained that she will continue immunotherapy for the rest of the year.
