Julia Louis-Dreyfus Diagnosed With Breast Cancer

The Veep star just announced some heartbreaking news.

On Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took to Twitter to share that she's been diagnosed with breast cancer. "1 in 8 women get breast cancer," the 56-year-old said in a text photo. "Today, I'm the one."

She continued, "The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let's fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality."

In a statement made to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO shared that Louis-Dreyfus received her cancer diagnosis the day after she took home an Emmy for best actress in a comedy series on Sept. 17.

"Our love and support go out to Julia and her family at this time," HBO's statement read. "We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of Veep."
