Julia Louis Dreyfus is best known for playing the part of Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, and more recently, Selina Meyer in the hit HBO series, VEEP.
Today she took to Twitter and Instagram to reveal that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer since September 18th. Some may recall that this was just one day after winning 2 Emmy’s for VEEP.
“1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.” – Julia Louis Dreyfus
She continued, “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring 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.”
Today our thoughts and prayers are with Julia as she faces this challenge.
