Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross has admitted that she was devastated when husband and father to her two daughters, Tom Mohoney was diagnosed with cancer last year. So much, that she couldn’t bring herself to tell her kids that their father was fighting for life as she could not see fear in their eyes. Even now when Tom’s health has improved, the couple is determined to put the ordeal behind them and not tell the kids as they are too young to fully understand it.
Marcia participated in the celebrity Cancer telethon “Stand Up to Cancer” on Friday to raise money for cancer research. Although she said it made her sad to think so many people were battling cancer, she said she was in a “great place” and couldn’t be happier with her lot in life. She added that she felt blessed that her family was able to win the war against cancer.
