More than four months after being diagnosed with breast cancer,  Brittney Cade Dirnt  -- wife of  Green Day 's  Mike Dirnt  -- has finished treatment. Dirnt has posted a  Instagram  photo of a tired but smiling Brittney, wearing a knit cap and with an IV cart that includes -- as a joke -- a bottle of Champagne.  

Dirnt broke the news of his wife's illness back in May when he posted a statement on  Green Day's Facebook page  that read: "Dear Green Day Family, Recently my wife Brittney was diagnosed with breast cancer. We have started our battle and she is enduring treatment as we speak! We want you to know that Brittney is strong and with the help of amazing doctors, support from family, and positive thoughts/prayers from our Green Day family, SHE WILL BEAT THIS! This is going to be a challenging year, but we are determined to get though this as quickly and openly as possible."

Dirnt posted updates of Brittney's treatments regularly, calling his wife a "tough cookie" and a "rock star." 

Mike and Brittney have two children, ages 3 and 5, as well as Mike Dirnt's 17-year-old daughter,  Estelle , from a previous marriage.
