Playing Rita Wilson's Inspirational Message to Cancer Patients: 'You Can Get Through It'

Rita Wilson has a powerful message to share with women battling cancer.

Nearly two months after revealing she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and undergone a double mastectomy, the 58-year-old actress spoke to ET at the 2015 Tony Awards on Sunday and gave a message to women who are currently fighting their own battle.

"I just want to say that my thoughts are with you, and I know that it... it's a truck that hits you, but I'm telling you, you'll get through it," she said. "It's a day at a time, and I pray for you, and I know -- I've been there. It will be good."

Meanwhile, Wilson returned to the Broadway play Fish in the Dark in May after taking a leave of absence to address her health concerns.
