Rita Wilson recently spoke with People about her breast cancer diagnosis and double mastectomy, how it impacted her current play and why getting a second opinion is so important. She explains her decision to take time away from work in the article, saying "'I have taken a leave from the play Fish in the Dark to deal with a personal health issue,' reveals Wilson, who will return to the Broadway play on May 5."
