Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Decided to Share Her Battle With Breast Cancer

Julia Louis-Dreyfus threw many into a shock when she revealed that she was battling breast cancer. Recently, the actress explained why she made up her mind to make the news about her disease go public, partly because the HBO series Veep, in which she starred, had to stop filming temporarily. Julia first shared the tragic news in September 2017 and penned that globally, in every eight women, one gets breast cancer. And she was the one.

Luckily for her, the star is surrounded by concerned friends and family members. However, not all women in the world are as lucky as Julia. At least she can afford quality health care and has the support of her friends and relatives.

For all you worried fans, rest assured that the series Veep is resuming soon for its last season. Julia could not hide the joy of getting back to what she loves most, acting. However, she revealed to Robin Roberts on Good Morning America, that she would not have announced her condition if the show would not have been temporarily halted for a short time. Her bold decision was very beneficial as she was able to raise a lot of money intended for women who needed to get mastectomies.

The former Seinfeld star was immensely comforted by the unbelievable support and love she got while facing her predicament. Julia now derives great pleasure from aiding those going through similar health challenges like her. Sharing good times and laughter with her loved ones has helped her remain strong and optimistic, especially when going through her chemotherapy sessions. “When I was getting my hideous chemotherapy, I’d cram a bunch of friends and family into the tiny treatment room with me…” She said.

Julia wholeheartedly agrees with the adage that laughter is the best medicine. Indeed, it has helped her pull through a lot.
