Rita Wilson is a real definition of valor and courage. She has had to face life-threatening situations, but somehow, came out a victor. Wilson and her husband, Tom Hanks, who rested positive for coronavirus have been quarantining together as they are recovering very fast from the pandemic. Hanks was in Australia shooting a movie when he contacted the virus and in no time, Wilson followed suit.

It is amazing news that the couple is fighting every day and inspiring younger generations in the world.

Before Wilson and Hanks contacted coronavirus, Wilson has fought one battle and come out a victor. Today, in the United States of America, cancer is one of the most feared illnesses amongst young men and women. However, as the years have gone by, scientists and specialists have found drugs and procedures to help battle this tragic illness.

Wilson made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show recently, and here, she revealed her battles with cancer and why she thinks it was a lesson in disguise.

On the show, Wilson gave a heart-breaking and amazing performance of her new song titled “Throw Me A Party.” She also explained that this song came as an inspiration when she was battling with cancer years ago.

When Wilson was at the peak of her musical career in 2015, she was shockingly diagnosed with breast cancer by her doctors.

“You hear the words that you never ever think you’re going to hear or ever want to hear, which is that I had breast cancer.”


Wilson further revealed that she had to go through a bilateral mastectomy to remove the cancer cells from her breast. She also revealed that during this tragic phase of her life, she began to wonder what the future holds for her. Although she was brave and trying to fight, the uncertainty that came with the illness, made Wilson prepare her tables, just in case she was never coming back.

“It was so interesting because when you’re going through something like that and you really don’t know what it’s going to be like and how it’s going to turn out.”

Wilson said that she had no idea how everything would turn out and the serious questions she kept thinking about, needed to be discussed with Hanks.

Wilson disclosed that since she had no idea what would happen to her, she told Hanks that if anything bad happened to her, she wanted him to do some things on her behalf. According to her, the first thing she wanted, was for him to be incredibly sad for a long time.

Thankfully, Hanks does not have to be sad for a really long time anymore.
