Joe Biden Tells Julia Louis-Dreyfus 'We Veeps Stick Together' After Actress Reveals Breast Cancer Battle
"All of the Bidens, are with you, Julia," the former Vice President tweeted
Joe Biden is proving that the bond between Veeps is as strong as ever.
“We Veeps stick together. Jill and I, and all of the Bidens, are with you, Julia,” Biden tweeted along with a photo from the pair’s popular White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2014 clip.
Louis-Dreyfus, 56, responded: “@JoeBiden yes we do. Love back to all of you.”
At the Milken Institute Global Conference in May, Biden said his cancer “moonshot” initiative would be working with world leaders to promote global collaboration on cancer research.
On Thursday, Louis-Dreyfus announced her cancer diagnosis through social media.
“1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” she wrote. “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring 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 health care a reality.”
Louis-Dreyfus didn’t provide any further details about her diagnosis. Her rep told PEOPLE in a statement, “Julia is incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and well wishes.”
Earlier this month the Veep star won her sixth consecutive Emmy, setting the record for most wins for a performance in the same role for the same series. HBO told PEOPLE in a statement that Louis-Dreyfus learned she had breast cancer just one day after the awards, and noted that the production schedule on Veep will be adjusted as needed.
“Our love and support go out to Julia and her family at this time,” HBO said in the statement. “We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of Veep.”
