Davis resident Ann Murray Paige was honored this month at a star-studded gala reception in Boston for being an advocate and inspiration to breast cancer survivors.

The Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center’s annual celebration, The One Hundred, honors 100 people or organizations for their contributions in the fight against cancer. This year’s reception was hosted by John Krasinski of “The Office” and co-chairs Vicary Graham and Patti and Jonathan Kraft at the Westin Boston Waterfront on June 5. The cause also continues to enjoy the support of Academy Award winner Matt Damon.

Initially diagnosed with breast cancer at age 37, Davis resident Ann Murray Paige has fought back with character and imagination. She is the charismatic subject of “The Breast Cancer Diaries,” a documentary that won multiple awards for its unsparing, funny and inspiring portrayal of a woman undergoing a life-changing cancer diagnosis and treatment. A mother of two young children, she addresses their fears and concerns while dealing with her own.

When cancer returned seven years later, Paige published a sequel of sorts, “Pink Tips: Breast Cancer Advice from Somebody Who’s Been There,” a book in which she reflects on 50 things that got her through the worst year of her life. Medical doctor Ann Partridge of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute says, “This book isn’t just for breast cancer patients, it’s for anyone going through anything tough in life.”

Paige’s blog, “projectpinkdiary,” has a worldwide following, and her latest project, a one-woman stage production titled “In the Pink,” is bringing her wit and wisdom to live audiences.
