In the post Julia bravely told fans, “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 that lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”

Julia’s announcement was met with an outpouring of love and support from both fans, celebrities and former Vice President Joe Biden, who tweeted a picture of the couple with the caption, “We Veeps stick together. Jill and I, and all of the Bidens, are with you, Julia.”
