Brittney Cade Dirnt , the wife of  Mike Dirnt  of  Green Day  is a rock star -- that's the word of Mike himself, who has posted a couple of new photos of Brittney undergoing what he calls "Round 2" of cancer treatment. The photos include a caption reading, "My wife is a rock star" and the hashtags "F***Cancer" and "F***YouCancer."

Dirnt broke the news of his wife's illness about ten days ago when he posted a statement on  Green Day's Facebook page  which 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 signed the note "With rage and love," and has posted several pictures since, including a closeup photo of Brittney with a nosebleed and the caption, " Daily nose bleeds! Hmmm that's new!"

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.

Stay tuned for more health updates.
