Stars and breast cancer in the public eye
Julia Louis-Dreyfus recently shared the news that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer on social media.
“One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, I am the one,” tweeted the star of Veep. She went on to say she is surrounded by supportive friends and family and has fantastic insurance through her 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,” said the 56-year-old actress.
She’s just one of the many stars who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. This month being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, raising awareness and funds for the cause is the focus–too many of us who have been touched personally in some way by this cancer. Louis-Dreyfus is just one of the celebrities who’ve been diagnosed with it; so many have inspired us with their strength and resilience.
