Marsha Hunt

The model, singer and author fought to prove her worth her entire career, even moving to London to find success. Perhaps her most poignant years had nothing to do with her career, but rather her struggle with breast cancer. The model bravely underwent a mastectomy without reconstruction to show that her “battle scar” was beautiful. In 2005, Hunt released a memoir about her battle with breast cancer, “Undefeated.”
