The Tutu Project

Nothing to do with Desmond Tutu. Pink tutu's. A grown, hairy man. In a pink tutu. And little else.

The Tutu Project is a love story.

Nothing kinky. True love of a man, Bob Carey and his wife Linda.

Linda has been battling breast cancer since 2003. Initially it seemed she had won the battle but then the cancer returned in 2006.

Bob started The Tutu Project as a way to raise money for breast cancer awareness. The self portrait pictures he has taken have brought joy to many individuals and families dealing with cancer. In Bob's own words:

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, theonly thing—we can do to face another day is to laugh at ourselves, and share a laugh with others.
