06 Juin, 2019, 20:39 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

The 57-year-old actress was diagnosed with the disease a year-and-a-half ago but is now in remission.

"I know that there are people who are ashamed", she said, "You have cancer, do you then also have to feel ashamed, like you did something bad because it took up residence in your anus?" I mean, come on, really. The actress appeared on CBS This Morning on June 5, to give a tell-all interview about her battle with the disease, which she was diagnosed with in November 2017, and talked about how it may be linked to her husband Tom Mahoney's throat cancer, which he was diagnosed with in 2009, due to the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease. Today, she shared more details about her ordeal, revealing how her 2017 diagnosis may have been caused her husband's throat cancer. She learned about this after her diagnosis and is eager to let others know about the available HPV vaccine, which could have prevented their cancers, and how important it is to get it.

Cross told CBS she planned to vaccinate her 12-year-old twin daughters Eden and Savannah against HPV later this month.

"You can say: "Okay this is embarrassing, this is uncomfortable" and by time you know it, it's over, ' she said". "You just have to get used to it".

'I'm feeling back to normal though it's a new normal, ' Cross told CBS This Morning.

Promoting early prevention is just one of the ways Cross is pushing for greater awareness of anal cancer.

Marcia Wednesday Tom in 2006, following the death of her first husband actor Richard Jordan in 1993. "I don't think I'll ever take it for granted".

Statistically, anal cancer is on the rise.
