A funny thing happened one day – I fell in love with a pink tutu.

Actually I really fell in love with a couple, their story and the healing effects of a pink tutu.

I hope you will too.

Who Knew, Pink Tutu?

In 2003 Bob Carey put on a pink tutu and took pictures. His images became a blessing to him and to others. Why? Because his wife had been diagnosed with breast cancer and he was seeking to support her healing.

Cancer is tough as is any serious illness. His wife, Linda, was diagnosed  with cancer in the early 2000s and recovered only to be rediagnosed in 2006. Obviously her journey is a difficult one. Bob donned the tutus to cheer her up and help her heal. She would share her tutu photos with other cancer patients and they would all have a lightening laugh. Lightness can be very difficult to achieve when you have a serious illness but is also very healing. It brings fresh energy into the body which can release stuckness and stagnant energy. That release can facilitate healing.

Bob and Linda and their pink tutu story are beautifully documented in this video. The images are a hoot!

Bob’s work has been published and is the foundation for the Carey Foundation and the Pink Tutu Project for Cancer awareness. You can visit here.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

    What a great twist on the pink princess phenomenon. Just right for those who don’t celebrate V-day in traditional ways.
    In Finland, I’m told that it’s known as Friendship Day – which is another cheeringly inclusive idea.
    Happy Friendship Day, +Maria Hill.

      Hi Diana,

      Thanks for stopping by and for your comment. I had not heard of Friendship Day but love the idea. I dislike anything that creates exclusion. Thank you for your good wishes and I hope you are having a great Friendship Day as well.

      All the best,
