How did he become Ballerina Bob?  By donning a pink tutu and snapping intriguing images of himself in various locations around the world.

The initial pink tutu image was captured in black and white for non-profit Ballet Arizona.  Bob Carey states that, “The whole project started before [Linda] was diagnosed.”

Ballerina Bob’s mission to bring laughter to his wife also brings a momentary reprieve to others in the same scenario as Linda brings the pictures of Ballerina Bob with her to her chemotherapy sessions.

Ballerina Bob began to gain fame and eventually the couple started The Tutu Project.  “The mission of The Tutu Project is to support the fund raising efforts of The Carey Foundation for women with breast cancer. We strive to bring laughter and understanding to a community that has endured far too much.”

The Carey Foundation is a non-profit organization that was started in 2012 by Bob and Linda to raise money for women and their families who are struggling with breast cancer.  The Carey Foundation is partnered with CancerCare and helps with transportation to doctor appointments; wigs; lymphedema sleeves; childcare and counseling.

Due to the success and interest generated by The Tutu Project, Ballerina Bob and Linda have also published the book Ballerina.  The self-published book contains a collection of Ballerina Bob’s tutu pictures from across the globe, as well as some of the antics of Ballerina Bob and his adventures.
