Rita Wilson has had a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Rita Wilson, who took a break from her Broadway play Fish in the Dark last week to have surgery, said she had been diagnosed with invasive lobular carcinoma after seeking a second opinion from pathologists.
“I share this to educate others that a second opinion is critical to your health,” the actress wrote.
“You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed is found.”
Rita Wilson, who appeared with Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle and has a recurring role in TV series The Good Wife, is expected to return to Fish in the Dark on May 5th.
