Former US vice president Joe Biden expressed support for Julia Louis-Dreyfus after the award-winning ‘Veep’ star announced she had breast cancer.
Biden’s son Beau died of brain cancer in 2015 aged 46.
In his tweet, Biden used a photo from a video in which he and Louis-Dreyfus spoofed the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2014 in the hit television show.

“Yes we do. Love back to all of you,” Louis-Dreyfus replied after Biden’s message.
The 56-year-old American actress disclosed the diagnosis to her 750,000 Twitter followers, posting a picture of a note that read: “One in eight women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.”

“The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring friends, and fantastic insurance through my union,” she continued.
“The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”
The news comes less than two weeks after the ‘Veep’ star won a sixth consecutive Emmy for comedy acting.
