Actress and singer Rita Wilson is thanking God for blessing her with good health after she and her husband Tom Hanks tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month.

Wilson took to her Instagram account to tell fans that her coronavirus scare is now behind her. The actress and singer also noted that March 29 coincides with several other milestones in her life.

“This date, March 29, represents a time of great happiness,” Rita Wilson said on Monday on Instagram. “I was on Broadway starring with Larry David in his play Fish In The Dark before finding out I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. March 29 also marks five years of being cancer-free after having had a bilateral mastectomy. I am so thankful for my health, for the doctors, nurses, friends, and family who got me through that time.”

This date, March 29, represents a time of great happiness. I was on Broadway starring with Larry David in his play Fish In The Dark before finding out I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. March 29 also marks five years of being cancer free after having had a bilateral mastectomy. I am so thankful for my health, for the doctors, nurses, friends and family who got me through that time. You, online friends, also need to be thanked because your prayers and optimism were felt deeply. And, so thankful for the blessings God has bestowed on me, then and now. One year ago on March 29, I was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a street, that as a child, I’d walk on an read all the names of the stars I admired, never believing one day my name would be on one of those stars. And one year ago today, I released my fourth album, Halfway to Home. Every day I get to make music is a gift. So much has happened musically in that one year. So much goodness. All of this would not be possible without good health. So, today, March 29, I am celebrating the beauty of this life, the blessings God has given , and my continued good health, even now as a COVID 19 survivor. Please take a moment today to acknowledge the amazing creation your bodies are and to thank it for doing so much.

Wilson pointed out that she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and released her 2019 album, Halfway to Home, on March 29, as well.

She also hastened to thank God for her good fortune.

“So, today, March 29, I am celebrating the beauty of this life, the blessings God has given, and my continued good health, even now as a COVID 19 survivor,” Wilson added. “Please take a moment today to acknowledge the amazing creation your bodies are and to thank it for doing so much.”

Both Wilson and her Cast Away star husband tested positive early in March, and originally self-quarantined in Australia where Hanks was filming a new movie, but both are now back in the U.S. after their infection waned.
