'Seinfeld' Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus Opens Up About Cancer Battle: 'I Feel Very Strong'
Julia Louis-Dreyfus told Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night that she has returned to work on "Veep" after treatment for breast cancer.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced she is cancer-free on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Thursday night as the late-night host returned to Brooklyn for the week.
"Everything is good. I’m back to work at 'Veep' which is amazing," she told Kimmel. "I feel very strong."
The 57-year-old Emmy winner of "Veep" announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago.
Her show went on hiatus while she had surgery and three rounds of chemo.
After having a procedure in February, she posted a photo with the message: "Hoorah! Great doctors, great results! Feeling happy and ready to rock after surgery."
On Thursday night, she also discussed her treatment with Kimmel and how health care should be for everyone.
“I got a lot of positive feedback, I think people liked that I had a sense of humor about it and also I think it’s an important conversation to have about health and health care,” she said. “Health care should be for all.”
The forthcoming season of “Veep” will be the show’s last.
“It’s bittersweet," she told Kimmel. "I adore these people and I adore the show and what we’ve been able to achieve with it."
The show has three more episodes left to film.
