Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 56, revealed that she has breast cancer in a heartbreaking typed and signed letter on Sept. 28. “One in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” the Veep actress revealed in a letter to her Twitter and Instagram followers. “Just when you thought…” she wrote in the body of the tweet.
“The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union,” Julia continued. “The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”
