 Tom Hanks Slams Cancer 'Quacks' for Advising Needless Procedures Just to Make Money

Tom Hanks wife Rita Wilson was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2014 and now after nine months of struggle she's done with all the required medical treatment. The 'Forest Gump' star blasted the cancer 'quacks' who unnecessarily try to push the patient over needless procedures just to make money.

The 59-year-old Oscar Winner actor said, "One should first find out the meaning of cancer and then should place their advice, because unnecessary suggestions affects the cancer patient and all adds to their difficulty."

The Hollywood star added, "Thankfully I am lucky enough to afford good medical care, but there are people who are dealing and selling in false hopes."
