As a young adult cancer survivor, Samantha has learned to use life experiences as fuel. Her health challenges have been her greatest teachers. After 6 major surgeries and some lovely scars to show for it, she is happy to feel stronger and healthier than ever. In January 2016, Samantha launched Last Cut, a photo-documentary art project and started writing her upcoming memoir. Last Cut was born when she opted to remove silicone implants she had elected with a preventive double mastectomy in 2008. Paige collaborated with photographer Lisa Field to document the year following this surgery. This project is inspired by her love of the truth and belief in the great power of community and connection with other like-minded individuals around our most profound life experiences. She also spoke her truth and bared her scars in a video commercial posted to the brand's worldwide social media audience.
