It has been, no doubt, a long and difficult year for actress Kelly Preston and her husband actor John Travolta, who tragically lost their 16-year old son Jett in January of this year. And that's probably a gross understatement about their ongoing struggle.

So quite understandably the grieving mom is not ready yet to talk openly about her loss.


According to E! Online, Ms. Preston was scheduled to publicly break her silence about Jett's death, by participating in a "Grief & Resilience" panel at the California Governor's Conference for Women in October. However, Preston released the following cancellation statement to People:

"It is with my sincere apologies that I must pull out from speaking at [the] conference. I am sorry, but I truly believed that I could do it," said a grieving Preston. "Otherwise I never would have said that I could. But I am still deeply in the process of healing, and it's just too soon."

My heart goes out to their heartbroken family.
