Rita Wilson announced Tuesday that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and has undergone a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery in order to fight the disease.
The actress revealed her diagnosis and treatment in a statement to People, and said the prognosis is good. “I am recovering and most importantly, expected to make a full recovery,” she said. “Why? Because I caught this early, have excellent doctors and because I got a second opinion.”
Wilson has recently appeared on Girls and The Good Wife and recently took a leave from the play A Fish in the Dark because of her health. Wilson said that her husband Tom Hanks was “by my side” through it all.
