Rita Wilson Diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Has Double Mastectomy & Reconstructive Surgery

Actress Rita Wilson has just revealed that she is battling breast cancer and recently underwent a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.

“I have taken a leave from the play Fish in the Dark to deal with a personal health issue. Last week, with my husband by my side, and with the love and support of family and friends, I underwent a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma. I am recovering and most importantly, expected to make a full recovery. Why? Because I caught this early, have excellent doctors and because I got a second opinion,” the 58-year-old actress told People, adding that her husband Tom Hanks and family have been a blessing.

Rita explains that her first diagnosis did not feel right, so she got a second opinion, and that’s when the horrible news hit. “I share this to educate others that a second opinion is critical to your health. You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed is found, which does happen. Early diagnosis is key,” Rita said. “I feel blessed to have a loving, supportive husband, family, friends and doctors and that I am the beneficiary of advances in the field of breast cancer and reconstruction. I am getting better every day and look forward to renewed health.”

We send our best to Rita and her family during this time. We hope she makes a speedy recovery!

Tom Hanks & Sara Bareilles Cameo in Rita Wilson's 'Girls Night In' Music Video - Watch Now!

Rita Wilson has the time of her life in the music video for her brand new song “Girls Night In“!

The 58-year-old entertainer dances around, plays games and shares some laughs with her real-life girlfriends, including singer Sara Bareilles, before her husband Tom Hanks walks in to make a surprise appearance in the clip.

“I have always loved having my girlfriends over for dinner. Staying in, instead of going out, frees you up to be totally yourself. No judgments. No one watching,” Rita told People. “You can be loud, crazy, cut loose. I wanted the song to convey that feeling of total fun you have when you are with your girlfriends and how there is no substitute for that.”

“I had thought about what would happen if Tom were to walk in during a real Girls Night In,” Rita continued. “and thought of how when you’re in that moment of utter hilarity, to you and your friends, what that might look like to someone walking into the setting right then.”
