This Guy Traveled The Country In A Pink Tutu Just To Make His Wife Laugh During Chemo

Because laughter can be the best medicine.

1. Meet Bob and Linda Carey.

2. After Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer, Bob began taking beautiful but totally ridiculous photographs of himself in a pink tutu.

3. “When Linda would go in for treatment, she would take the images on her phone and the women would look at them and it would make them laugh and make the time pass,” Bob said.

4. Linda said the other women appreciated that Bob was standing out in order to stand by her.

5. After so much postive feedback, Bob knew he had to continue making the photographs. The Tutu Project was born and quickly went viral.

7. And even traveled to Italy…

8. Always finding creative ways to capture himself in the tutu, and make his wife and her friends laugh.

9. “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.”

10. You can purchase a calendar full of pictures of Bob in his pink tutu here. The proceeds benefit the Carey’s Foundation, which provides support to women diagnosed with breast cancer, survivors, and their family members.
