Seinfeld and Veep star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, announced Thursday via twitter that she has breast cancer and used the announcement to advocate for universal health care.
She started the statement off saying, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.”
Earlier this month, Julia won her sixth straight best actress in a comedy Emmy for her role as Selina Meyer in “Veep.” The show airing on HBO will air a final, seventh season next year.
We are praying for Julia and hope she fights strong!
