Shirley Temple Black

The child actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in the autumn of 1972. The tumor was removed, and a modified radical mastectomy performed. Following the operation, she announced it to the world via radio, television, and a February 1973 article for the magazine McCall's. In doing so, she became one of the first prominent women to speak openly about breast cancer
