There can be life after breast cancer, as every single breast-cancer survivor has proved. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who was diagnosed with the disease late last year, has now joined the ranks of these women.
The Veep actress posted a beautiful, triumphant photo of herself after her breast-cancer surgery, praising the doctors who were key to the success of her operation.
The 57-year-old actress revealed the news of her operation on her social media accounts, telling fans that she was elated and ready to rise up after the surgery.

“Hoorah! Great doctors, great results, feeling happy and ready to rock after surgery,” Louis-Dreyfus wrote in the post.
In September 2017, the Seinfeld actress had announced her breast cancer diagnosis, days after she won her sixth Emmy award for her role as Selina Meyer on Veep. In a post she shared, she called for a universal improvement in health care, so that all cancer patients can be supported through their ordeal.
“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.”
