The actress shared the good news via Instagram, holding up a sign that reads, "CHEMO ROUND 4."

"I AM HALFWAY THROUGH CHEMO! I’m officially saying ✌️to adriamycin + cytoxan (nausea, grossness, like a really bad hangover with none of the fun the night before)," she shared in her caption. "Next up: 4 rounds of Taxol (main symptom- bone pain😅). I’m so excited to be done with this portion. It was nothing short of horrible! Hoping Taxol is a bit easier."

"I really can’t believe I’ve made it this far. I felt very raw and emotional today. There was a lot of crying- but the good, in touch with life, kind," she confessed. "I’m very proud of myself. There were many moments these past 2 months when life felt impossible to be living."

McKeon thanked her friends, family and even strangers for helping her keep her spirits lifted.

"Especially the people who have gone through this treatment or been touched by cancer and told me IT SUCKS -AND- I CAN DO IT," she said. "My team of people have kept me going when things got really rocky."

The Anne with an E star explained that she was wearing a sustainable Free People dress in her photo "because I feel like I’m reclaiming the 'hospital gown look' and revamping it with fashionnnn🤌. I got loads of compliments!"

When she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, she insisted that she is "making it my job to find the beauty in all of this. I wouldn't have chosen this, I didn't choose this, I don't think anyone would choose this. But I'm making it my job to try and pull something out of this."

The blonde beauty is proving that she's not letting her health battle slow her down, as she announced she would be moving back to L.A. this Friday to continue her college education at USC.

"This didn’t seem possible at first but I’ve told my team from the beginning that I have things to do and places to be and staying home this semester wasn’t an option for me," she shared.

"Learning more each day how different cancer and I are. We do not share the same vibe. We are not BFFs. She does not fit into my schedule," McKeon declared. "I’m thankful for my health that permits me to make this move as well as my doctors/parents/friends for making this a smooth and possible transition."

"I’m super excited to be back at USC living with my 3 awesome roommates (with my mom nearby in Manhattan beach to help with treatments and when I feel 🤒)," she concluded. "Taking classes, being with my friends, beach, sun, football games, etc. all sounds like a NORMAL DREAM."
