As Us Weekly reported on Thursday, September 28, the Emmy-winning star revealed in an Instagram post that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.
“1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” the Saturday Night Live alum wrote. “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.”
Her Veep costar Tony Hale, Seinfeld alum Jason Alexander, Anna Kendrick, Lena Dunham, and breast cancer survivors Christina Applegate and Rita Wilson were among the stars who took to social media to send messages of support to the beloved star on Thursday.
“So sorry you have to go thru this, pal, but I know you will prevail,” Alexander, 58, tweeted just after midnight on Friday. “We are here if/when you need and we love you.”
Former vice president Joe Biden also tweeted his support, writing, “We Veeps stick together. Jill and I, and all of the Bidens, are with you, Julia.”
Louis-Dreyfus’ rep told Us, “Julia is incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and well wishes.”
