True Love: Rita Wilson Tells How Tom Hanks Hepled Her Through The Battle With Cancer

Date December 19, 2017

Hollywood romance of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson started back in the early 80s, but they got married only in 1988. However, after that, they became really inseparable and next year they’ll be celebrating 30 years together. Tom and Rita have been through a lot of amazing things, including having two children and different nominations and awards.

But that’s only a part of what is making them a real example of a great couple. One serious challenge came to them in 2015 when Rita was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was absolutely devastating for her, as to any person who gets such horrible news. But the main thing is that Tom Hanks was her main supporter and helped Rita a lot during all this.

Later Wilson shared her experience:

You never know how your spouse is going to react in a situation like this. I was so amazed, so blown away by the care my husband gave me ... who knew it would make you even closer?


Rita is very thankful for all her husband has done to her while she was going through the mastectomy and other unpleasant things. But Tom knew it’s nothing special about his behavior. It’s just how things should be done:

You just clear the decks and you circle the wagons and you hunker down. It's not that hard to do. It's like when there's a big rainstorm outside, you bust out the hot cocoa and make sure everyone is comfortable.

Now his wife is cancer-free and it’s definitely happy news not only for their family but for all their fans. Hanks and Wilson showed that true feelings and family are really important and that’s what can get a person through even the hardest times.
