Marcia Cross, well known for her role in Desperate Housewives, was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2017 and completed successful treatment nearly a year later. In an interview last summer, she said, "I know there are people who are ashamed. You have cancer! You have to then also feel ashamed? Like you did something bad, you know, because it took up residence in your anus?"
She is helping to break through the stigma with her public discussions of anal cancer both in interviews and on her social media channels.
