She wrote, “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.”

So much to be thankful for

Rita continued, “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.”

We are so happy that Rita and Tom have recovered from coronavirus and are back home!
