It takes courage to be vulnerable. Cancer patients don’t have a choice. They are thrust into it. Bob Carey, a photographer who loves to make his wife laugh, chose to share that vulnerability as his wife worked her way through a second round of cancer treatments. His method? A pink tutu.
Bob’s courage and love for his wife make me smile.
And what better way to get back at cancer than with laughter.
One man had a very good idea to help his wife and many more battle breast cancer and he did it all in a pink tutu. New York photographer, Bob Carey posed in a tutu as a joke for a fundraiser in 2003. Soon after, his wife was diagnosed with cancer and he began the tutu project. He’s taken more than 100 pics of himself sporting the pink tutu in various locations. He’s launched a website to sell the photos to get donations. Carey is also compiling the pics for a book called “Ballerina” which comes out this fall.

In honor of my amazing mother-in-law Pat, who lost her battle with ovarian cancer last week. A loving, strong and courageous woman, whom I will always be grateful to have spent precious time with.
