Darla Jaye, a former talk show host for KMBZ, a radio station based in Kansas City, Missouri, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in February this year.
She underwent a course of radiation treatment at Harris Health System in Houston, Texas, in order to shrink the tumour.
At the end of her course of radiotherapy, Jaye rang a “cancer free” bell – a popular ceremony on cancer wards for marking the end of treatment. Initially a US tradition, it has more recently gained popularity in the UK.
In the hilarious footage, Jaye rings the bell with such enthusiasm that she breaks the piece of rope she is tugging on.
The video, shared by ABC News, has received over 1,000 “likes” on Twitter at time of writing.
Well-wishers praised Jaye in the comments below, wishing her continued good health.

"I couldn't even fathom being done, I was so overwhelmed yesterday," Jaye told CNN of her celebration. “Guess I didn't know how strong I was!"
She continued: "Even though I kind of knew what was coming, you don't really know when you lay down on a radiation bed getting ready for treatment.”
Jaye says she is “very, very grateful” to the doctors who treated her.
Earlier this year, a Canadian woman who died aged 35 after a two-year battle with a rare form of cancer made headlines after sharing an important message: “Don’t take the small stuff so seriously and live a little.”
