Man Wears Pink Tutu to Help His Wife And Others Battle Breast Cancer

youtube

You know the saying ‘Humor is the best medicine’?  Bob Carey does too. He wears a pink tutu for breast cancer.

The Tutu Project started out as just a little fun. Back in 2003 when Carey took a picture of himself in a tutu and donated it to the Arizona Ballet for a fund raiser. Then his wife Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer.

“It wasn’t about her when I started,” Carey tells Shine. But when she was recovering from surgery, he found it was the one thing he could do to take break. “It takes a lot of love for him to put that tutu on,” Linda tells Shine. “And it makes us laugh.”

On the website he says:

Linda, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She beat it, only to have it recur in 2006. During these past nine years, I’ve been in awe of her power, her beauty, and her spirit. Oddly enough, 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.

He’s taken over 100 pictures of himself in a tutu in different settings around the country. A book will be released in the fall. The money raised goes toward breast cancer organizations.  The Tutu Project has already raised over $8,000, not to mention thousands of smiles!
