TV Sitcom Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has Breast Cancer

It was a pretty subtle announcement on a pretty big subject. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus took to social media this week when she reveal she has breast cancer.

She actually posted it on Twitter, writing "1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one." Pretty profound.

The 56-year-old actress went on to say "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 healthcare a reality," she concluded.
