“I think I reached a lot of people. I was able to raise a lot of money for women who have had mastectomies, who need reconstruction but insurance doesn’t cover that, and I was really happy to be able to do that. The outpouring of support was quite overwhelming,” Julia said.

She later added that an important part of her treatment was her laughter from her kids and Veep coworkers.

“It helped me get through chemotherapy in a big way,” Julia explained.
