Emmy-winning comedic actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she is battling breast cancer and highlighted the case for universal health care.
Louis-Dreyfus, 56, who plays foul-mouthed fictitious US president Selina Meyer on HBO’s Veep, said on Thursday, “one in eight women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” in a short post on her social media platforms.
“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 Seinfeld actress 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.”
