Over the weekend, 18-year-old Black-ish actress Marsai Martin revealed a secret that she had been keeping about her health. In an Instagram Story post, Martin shared a black-and-white photo of her on a stretcher in the hospital, along with details about a recent surgery to remove a large ovarian cyst. She explained that the painful cyst had been causing her pain for years, and expressed gratitude for the support she received from her family and educators throughout the process.
“Thank y’all for all the love. The procedure was 10 days ago and I’m now feeling fine. I also appreciate the stories from folks that have been through the same thing! But I’m back and I’m betta,” Martin said in a subsequent post.
Last month, Martin announced the launch of her first-ever digital fashion collection, which she described in an Instagram post as “a dream come true.” She expressed excitement about the new venture, and thanked her fans for their ongoing support.
