Husband Dons Pink Tutu to Amuse Wife Fighting Cancer
Bob Carey is a photographer who takes pictures around the world, but wearing nothing but a pink tutu. The reason for such an attire is to bring a smile on the face of her wife who is battling breast cancer.
Linda, Bob’s wife of 27 years once stated that she would laugh seeing the photos and would make her feel positive. Ever since then Bob, now better known as Ballerina Bob decided to use his talent for bringing the smile on her wife’s face. The photos clicked by Bob definitely made her laugh and when she shared those photos with others in the hospital also smiled together.
The project which is called Tutu Project, was started back in 2003, and by now Bob has built up a huge collection. He published his entire collection in the book named Ballerina. Under the project, limited edition of prints from Bob’s work are also available for further fund raising.
Proceeds that will follow the book sale will be sent directly to the Carey Foundation, set up by Bob last year for benefitting women that are suffering from breast cancer.
According to reports from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in Hispanic women.
