Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced she is cancer-free on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". "First and foremost, we had to stall Veep production because of my situation-a lot of people work for me, and I knew I couldn't really keep it private because I had to tell everybody what was going on". But because she had to suspend production on the HBO series, and also saw an opportunity to use her platform to discuss the USA healthcare system, she knew she had to tell her story. "I very much considered the notion that, as someone battling this disease, the idea that I might not have health insurance, which I do thanks to my great union, is completely terrifying".

She added: 'Health care should be for all'.

The actress was then questioned about why she chose to share her treatment updates on social media, to which she replied: "I did it for a couple of reasons". "The response I've gotten is that it's been buoying to people who are battling cancer".

During her tough journey, the 57-year old gave updates of her experience on social media.

When Veep season seven premieres in 2019, it will be the series' last - and shortest - season, with just seven episodes to wrap up the adventures of Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and company. "I love making people laugh, and I love making people cry even", she explained, "I find the pursuit of a truthful performance to be deeply satisfying to my core".
