Kelly Preston is pulling out of the annual Women's Conference, where she was to break her silence about the death of her teenage son.

The actress said in a statement Friday that she is "still deeply in the process of healing, and it's just too soon."

Preston was set to participate in a panel on grief at the annual event hosted by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver.

Preston and her husband, John Travolta, have kept low profiles since their 16-year-old son, Jett, died following a seizure in January.

The Women's Conference will be held Oct. 26-27 in Long Beach, California.
