She wrote: “While yesterday was a win (the cancer is contained in my right breast and right lymph nodes), my NYC appointment afterwards walked me through what the next year+ will look like, and that felt like a loss. A huge loss. I am frustrated because I feel that I am too tired and jumbled to focus on the things I love most.”

Miranda played Josie Pye on the show

The Josie Pye actress previously told fans about her diagnosis, writing: “It is with a heavy yet hopeful heart that I share news that I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer… I am 19 and as statistics go, the chances of having breast cancer at this age are one in a million! (Literally, look it up on Google) I am so special - but we knew this!

"I have breast cancer that will be treated with chemotherapy, radiation and some sort of surgery (which will be determined by test results I am still waiting on). The good news is breast cancer is very treatable and very curable and I WILL BE OKAY!"
