Jamie Kilbey named Coloma Fall Fest 5K recipient

With Coloma’s Fall Fest only three weeks away, Coloma has named Jamie Kilbey as the recipient of the 5K Walk/Run which will take place on Saturday, Sept. 30, at 10 a.m. through downtown Coloma.

Four months ago, Jamie Kilbey, a 48-year-old vibrant woman, felt a lump in her breast. She had a biopsy taken and the news was every woman’s nightmare. Immediately, the doctors recommended chemotherapy through a port. Not too many days later, Jamie came down with an infection that nearly killed her.

During the period of fighting the infection, Jamie could not have any chemotherapy. Therefore, there was a possibility the tumor would continue to grow. However, the infection has since gone away and Jamie is now undergoing chemotherapy. She has seven more weeks before the doctors will operate on the tumor.
