Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Son Tweets Sweet Message After His Mom's Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Last week, actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 56, announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since the announcement, support for the “Seinfeld” and “Veep” star has been overwhelming, but it was her oldest son, Henry, who followed up with one of most endearing statements on Twitter.

In the tweet, which included a childhood photo of him and his mother, Hill posted: “I couldn’t be more thankful for the outpouring of support for my mom yesterday.”

Louis-Dreyfus responded to her “boy with good manners,” that she too, is thankful.

The Emmy-winning star also received some supportive shout-outs from a few famous friends.

In her diagnosis announcement, Louis-Dreyfus stated, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer.”

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 40,610 women will die from breast cancer this year. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Know the signs and symptoms and please get checked. Early detection is key.
