Posing in Pink for Cancer Awareness

Photographer Poses in Tutu to Raise Breast Cancer Funds

Odd News by NewsLook


In 2003, Bob and Linda Carey got some bad news. Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer. Looking for a way to cope, the couple created The Tutu Project. Bob, a photographer by trade, takes portraits of himself posing in a tutu. He hopes to take enough images to fill a book, which could then be sold to generate money to fight breast cancer.

I would feel much better if alternative methods of fighting cancer were supported. Radiation and chemo as the only way to fight cancer is suspicious. I hope that the money that Bob has so lovingly and with humour collected for the cure to cancer is used wisely and well. Health and a long life to Linda and Bob.
