According to People, the milestones included the actress conquering breast cancer and, more recently, becoming a novel coronavirus “survivor.”

[Rita Wilson] and her husband [Tom Hanks] were diagnosed with COVID-19 after they experienced some colds and body aches.

To mark the occasion, Rita shared an Instagram tribute with three images and a lengthy caption that read in some parts:

“March 29 also marks five years of being cancer free after having had a bilateral mastectomy.”

The “Sleepless in Seattle” actress went on to state that on the same date in 2019 she was furnished with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rita pointed out that she never believed that she would earn a spot on the same street that had the names of the stars she looked up to. A year ago on the same date, Rita released her fourth album titled, “Halfway to Home.”

As regards her cancer diagnosis, the “All I Have to Do Is Dream” crooner disclosed that she told her husband, Tom Hanks, that she wanted him to be sad for a long time if anything happened to her.

She also told Tom that she would prefer it if they celebrated her life with a party and as it turned out, that idea inspired her to write the song “Throw Me a Party.”

It would be recalled that the “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” actress and her husband were diagnosed with COVID-19 after they experienced some colds and body aches.

People reported that the news was broken by Tom who uploaded an image of a pair of disposable gloves in a bin as he explained that he and Rita were following the instructions of medical practitioners.

As at the time of the diagnosis, Tom was in Australia’s Gold Coast for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann‘s untitled Elvis Presley biopic.

Tom was slated to play the role of the music icon’s longtime manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Filming for the movie has since been put on hold.
