Marsha has led an extraordinary life. After she was unfairly blacklisted - and her career in film, television and radio came to a quiet halt, she found a new passion as a humanitarian and activist. She WAS the first Angelina Jolie. Eleanor Roosevelt was her mentor when she started supporting the United Nations Association in 1955. She gave over 50 years to the U.N going around the country talking about the specialized agencies of the UN & the good work they were doing. She was one of Hollywood's first celebrity activists. Starting with World War II, where she worked almost every Saturday night of the war at the Hollywood Canteen- and for the next seven decades, Marsha raised awareness and funds for the homeless, the hungry, those with mental illness... the list goes on. In 2017, she celebrates 82 years as an actress.
If Marsha has touched your life in ANY way, please show your gratitude by "paying it forward".
Please HONOR her life by giving WHAT you can. Times ARE tough. if you can't give a donation, you can do your part by SHARING this with others who love Marsha. Let's get this film into THEATERS!!

Blessings to ALL and PEACE to all wherever you are in the world!! - Roger C. Memos, Director "Marsha Hunt's Sweet Adversity"
