Rita Wilson revealed Tuesday that she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and has already undergone a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. In a statement to E! News, Wilson explained her situation in full and urged women to always seek a second opinion.
"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," the "Girls Night In" singer said. "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."
