Rumble / Entertainment LifeMarcia Cross wants to end the shame surrounding anal cancer.

The "Desperate Housewives" star appeared on Wednesday's episode of "CBS This Morning" to discuss her diagnosis more than a year ago.

Cross is talking about her cancer battle to help destigmatize the disease.

Her husband, actor Tom Mahoney, was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2009.
