“We Veeps stick together.” 

After announcing Thursday that she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Veep star and six-time Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus was met with an outpouring of love and support from fans and the Hollywood community.

Now, another former (real life) vice president has sent his best wishes to JLD. Joe Biden tweeted a picture of himself and Louis-Dreyfus in matching aviators ready to make some Washington power moves with the caption, "We Veeps stick together. Jill and I, and all of the Bidens, are with you, Julia."

In her announcement Thursday via Instagram post, Louis-Dreyfus wrote:

"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 so lucky, so let's fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality."

Just when you thought...
