“1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” the actress wrote. “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring 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.”
Earlier this month, the actress won her sixth Emmy in a row, setting a record for the most wins for a performance in the same role for the same series.
In a statement, HBO says Louis-Dreyfus learned she had cancer the day after the awards, noting that the production schedule on Veep will be adjusted as needed.
