Have you heard about The Tutu Project? Since my mom had two cancer scares in the past 3 years, this incredibly sweet, heart-breaking and hilarious project touched me in a very emotional way.
In 2003, Bob Carey and his wife, Linda, moved to New York and since it was a huge change from their previous life, Bob started this little tutu project to express his feeling about the move. Unfortunately, six months later, Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer. If that wasn't enough, 2 weeks later his sister was also diagnosed. So, for the next 10 years, Bob continued his tutu adventures in hopes to raise money to help other women and make people smile :)
In his own words: ‘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’.
What a wonderful man:) xo
P.S: Here is a lovely interview with Bob about this tutu project.
