Actor Tom Hanks’ wife, actress Rita Wilson, 58, revealed today in a statement released to People magazine, that she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer & has undergone a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.
‘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.’
