A Man and his… Tutu?

Here is a true love story: upon discovering his wife has breast cancer, a man takes photos of himself in a tutu for her to look and laugh at while she sits through treatment. And that is exactly what Bob Carey did. Watch this video to see how this man’s idea later became a book, which turned into a non-profit venture to help women with breast cancer.

Like the video said, rather than donating the money to research, Linda and Bob are working to provide things that make women comfortable during treatment. Some of the things that they help provide are wigs, transportation, childcare, home care, medical supplies and counseling.

The book is adorable and sure to make you laugh as well as reflect. It contains photos from around the world of Bob in his tutu and the story behind the pictures. You could keep this book on your coffee table to entertain guests, add it to your bookshelf, give it as a gift (my birthday is in September 😉 ), or just keep it around to brighten your day once in a while. He also offers 11″ x 14″ prints of a select few photos. This may be a little bold for most people to hang up in their home, but if you have the right décor, I’d say go for it! And lastly, The Tutu Project offers postcards that you can send to all your friends and family to brighten up their day!
