Eleven-time Emmy Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus has just announced that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The actress, comedian and producer shared a heartfelt message on Twitter, which reads “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one. 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 bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal healthcare reality.”

The actress, who has two sons with her husband, is best known for her television work on Saturday Night Live, Seinfeld and Veep.
