Rita Wilson has some AH-mazing news!
Eight months after announcing her breast cancer diagnosis (and the following double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery), the actress revealed on Wednesday that she has beat breast cancer!

Tom Hanks' other half excitedly shared at The Hollywood Reporter's Power 100 Breakfast:
"I am cancer free. I'm one hundred percent healthy!"
Ahh! We couldn't be happier for Rita!
The 59-year-old has big plans now that she's got her health back, revealing she and her band are going on tour:
"I'll start in New York at the Cafe Carlyle for two weeks on February 23rd. Then I have a couple weeks off, and then I start again at the end of March. I'll go through all the April and part of May. It's going to be hilarious. Me on a tour bus with my band members."
We can only imagine what an experience that will be — especially since her husband will be joining her on the road! She shared:
"He's already said, 'I am coming on the tour bus!' So I had to get one with a bigger bed. So that was important. He's coming. He's going to be on tour … He's a roadie."
Well, at least they'll be doing it together! And Rita continued:
"I feel really blessed and very lucky. Part of the reason for going on tour is that I want to show people that you can have cancer, and you can still be out there doing what you love to do, and it's not a death sentence like it used to be."
Amazing! We're so glad she's healthy and can get back to doing what she loves!
