A man in a pink tutu. Unexpected, revealing, a gift. For Bob Carey, it is a tribute to his wife Linda’s power, beauty, and spirit in the face of breast cancer.
Eleven years ago Linda was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. A few years later, it re-occurred.
Some husbands would head for the refrigerator, the gym, or the liquor cabinet; Bob went for the pink tulle. From the Brooklyn Bridge, through snowy fields, Italy, and beyond, he took photos in his tutu to make his wife smile and laugh.
Today Bob and his pink tutu have spread countless smiles and have become a symbol for breast cancer awareness and hope. The tutu photographs have developed into The Tutu Project.
The Tutu Project sells calendars, postcards, books, photos, and more on their website with the proceeds going to fund The Carey Foundation. The Carey Foundation supports women and men battling breast cancer, survivors, and their families.
“Her cancer has taught us that life is good, dealing with it can be hard, and sometimes the very best thing—no, the only thing—we can do to face another day is to laugh at ourselves, and share a laugh with others,” – Bob Carey
