Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Seinfeld costars Jason Alexander and Michael Richards showed their support following the actress’s breast cancer diagnosis.

“@OfficialJLD so sorry you have to go thru this, pal, but I know you will prevail. We are here if/when you need and we love you,” Alexander wrote.

Michael Richards also weighed in, telling People that “I wish Julia godspeed and a full recovery.” (Richards isn’t on social media.)

Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David have not issued any statements regarding Louis-Dreyfus’ diagnosis. Reps did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Seinfeld, Louis-Dreyfus, Alexander and Richards all starred on the David-created sitcom “Seinfeld” for nine seasons. The four have reunited a few times over the years, including in an episode of David’s HBO show “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Louis-Dreyfus revealed her diagnosis and called for universal health care while she was at it, on her Twitter and Instagram on Thursday.

“1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” the “Veep” star wrote. In the message, the actress also called for health care reform to help other women who don’t have the same resources she does. You can see her full statement below.

The internet rose up with messages of support, including fellow “Veep” Joe Biden, who tweeted “We Veeps stick together. Jill and I, and all of the Bidens, are with you Julia.”
