Jamie Page – 2017 Project Pink Model
Jamie Page is a Payroll Accounts Manager at Magnolia Health Systems. She was born and raised in Indianapolis, and her family includes her brother Brad, her mom Mary Jo, and husband Keith. Jamie and Keith are expecting their first child in November 2017.
After testing positive for the BRCA1 gene, Jamie underwent a double mastectomy six months before her wedding. Her mother Mary Jo is a 17-year breast cancer survivor and is also modeling in the 2017 Project Pink fashion show. Jamie’s grandmother and two great-aunts died from breast cancer at very young ages.
The long family history continues as Jamie also has two cousins, Anna and Beth, who carry the BRCA1 gene. Beth was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 34 and Anna, another 2017 Project Pink model, underwent a double mastectomy at 32, only to be diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after her surgery.
“To research the most effective way to improve the prevention, detection and treatment and to one day find a cure for breast cancer – that is what makes Komen such a great organization,” Jamie said.
