On Thursday, Julia Louis-Dreyfus revealed that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

She took to Twitter to make the announcement, writing, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.”

The Veep star and Emmy winner also used her announcement to shout-out the “most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends,” as well as her insurance. She then went on to say that not everyone is as lucky as she is, so we should “make universal health care a reality.”

Earlier this month, Louis-Dreyfus made history at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and won her sixth consecutive Emmy for best actress in a comedy. She is now has the most Emmys won by a single performer for one role. Unfortunately, Louis-Dreyfus found out about her diagnosis the day after her historic win, and filming for the last season of Veep will be scheduled accordingly.

Many fellow celebrities have tweeted out words of support for the Seinfeld actress.

According to the AP, Louis Dreyfus’ publicist said no further details would be available at this time, but that the actress “is incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and well wishes.”
