Photo Series of the Day: In 2003, Bob Carey started photographing himself wearing a tutu in various places “as a lark.” But, after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, The Tutu Project became so much more — it became a way to laugh again. Now, with Ballerina — a collection of Carey’s tutu photos — it’s also a way to raise money to help other breast cancer patients.
The net proceeds from the sale of the book will go directly to breast cancer organizations, including Cancercare.org and the Beth Israel Department of Integrative Medicine Fund, that make significant differences in the lives of women with breast cancer and in the people who love them. Our goal is to raise $75,000. But we need your help to seed the project so it will take root and grow—and positively affect these families.
