Tom Hanks wife, Rita Wilson, was very recently diagnosed with breast cancer. The 58 year old actress released a statement to PEOPLE today, April 13, 2015, that stated she had a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction surgery performed last week. She has taken a medical leave from the Broadway play she is currently working on, Fish in the Dark, in order to tackle her current medical issues. Tom, who is ever the doting husband, was and continues to be by her side through the ordeal. She is a strong advocate in early detection and prevention of the disease. Thankfully hers was caught early and she is expected to make a full recovery. We wish you all the best as you heal Mrs. Hanks! For more information on the different types of breast cancer and how you can be proactive in early detection, visit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation website at BCRFcure.org.
