(JTA) Julia Louis-Dreyfus, an American television actress who gained fame on the hit series Seinfeld, was diagnosed as suffering from breast cancer.
Louis-Dreyfus, whose paternal grandfather was Jewish, broke the news Thursday on Twitter.
1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, Im the one, wrote Louis-Dreyfus, who portrayed Elaine Benes on the hugely popular sitcom. She currently stars in the HBO comedy Veep, for which she has won a record six consecutive Emmy Awards playing the role of Selina Meyer.
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 56-year-old actress continued. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so lets fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.
Her revelation prompted an outpouring of sympathy on social networks from many film and television stars, including breast cancer survivors Rita Wilson and Christina Applegate, the New York Post reported.
Your undaunted spirit has always been an inspiration to your family at HBO. Sending our love and support, the network posted on Twitter.
Louis-Dreyfus has been married to Brad Hall, like her a former cast member on Saturday Night Live, for 20 years. They have two sons, Charlie and Henry.
And because she’s a “star” her cancer is more important than somebody elses. Of course she said she has awesome insurance but some women don’t so we need single payer health care. Um, okee dokee. Burnie payin’?
She’s a billionaire, so why does she need health insurance?
Good grief, Leftists will even insert politics in the midst of learning they have a deadly disease!
Real shame . . . lovely woman . . . Too bad
Yeah, not sure about the billionaire part. Except maybe from her family. Weren’t they some big financial thing in France or something? In any case, probably easier for her to afford insurance than a lot of us.
And she can't have Gary Fogel's hairpiece. Or George's.
She’s a Rothschild.
She has the cajones to deliver a MARXIST message throughout her personal tragedy. Sounds like her brain may be affected as well. It’s madness, just as was exhibited at the Wellstone funerals.
>>>and fantastic insurance through my union<<<
She is a Multi-Millionaire. She should be self Insured like Rush Limbaugh is so others can benefit with reduced Health Insurance Costs. Isn’t that what Liberals tell us?
I have Cancer too (Leukemia). I have HMO Insurance that costs me $1,987 a Month, up over $1000 a Month since December of 2013 thanks to Obamacare.
I am not a Multi-Millionaire. I am wiping out my IRA paying for my Coverage. Obamacare has cost me about $30,000 (so far) over what I would be paying if Obamacare never existed.
Speeches, fund raising walks, ribbons for all, but never dare a mention of a connection between birth control, abortion, and breast cancer.
What does her being Jewish have to do with her cancer diagnosis? Else why throw that tidbit into the story?
Prayers up. With modern medicine, mostly created by live and dead white men, she has a good cHance of survival.
They just can’t help themselves. Even when dealing with cancer she still has to deliver her wish to destroy the best healthcare system in the world. People from all over the world come here to get help and treatments they can’t get elsewhere.
Story is from Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Lost my Dad and my Mother-n-law to cancer and now our son is in the last stages with hospice care for cancer so I won’t wish anyone with it any ill will, but some of these folks make it very difficult.....
To think that I used to mildly disagree with Michael Savage when he would claim that “liberalism is a mental disorder.” Stupid me!

A while back business week reported that she is a billionaire
