Mom-of-two Marcia Cross recently talked about how the family is coping as her husband Tom Mahoney undergoes treatment for an undisclosed type of cancer.
Though Tom’s treatments often require him to be at the hospital, Marcia revealed on The Bonnie Hunt Show that she makes sure he isn’t missing out on any of their 2-year-old twins Eden and Savannah’s special moments and milestones. Even potty training!
“Tom was getting treatment in hospital, and let’s just say we took pictures of what went in the potty to show daddy,” Marcia says. “He’s a very proud papa!”
The 47-year-old Desperate Housewives star admits that she was “apprehensive” to take the girls to see their dad at the hospital, but says that in the end the visit was just what the doctor ordered.
“I was sort of apprehensive, but we just wanted to make it really normal. We didn’t tell them where they were going in case we had to change plans, but they came in and they were so happy to see him. They just wanted to explore everything.
It was great. It’s the best medicine. They don’t know what a hospital is, they don’t care. It’s just, ‘There’s dad!’ ”
Marcia is seen here warming up for last weekend’s 16th Annual Revlon Run/Walk For Women in LA, which raises money for the fight against ovarian and breast cancers.
