The TuTu Project began in 2003, due to Linda Carey's breast cancer diagnosis. Linda did beat her first battle with breast cancer, however 3 years later she would be diagnosed once more. During both battles Linda has had the support of her family, friends, and husband, Bob Carey. Bob has stated, "So many people in Linda’s life, myself included, have been in awe of the power, beauty, and spirit she carries with her, despite everything that’s going on within her." Therefore, inspired by his wife's strength Bob launched the TuTu project in 2006. He also published a novel entitled, "Ballerina" which captured anyone who was affected by breast cancer. Bob wanted to shed light on the support fighters and survivors of breast cancer need everyday.
Their mission statement at The TuTu Project is to raise awareness and funds for both men and women as well as their families to help assist with the financial stresses that come alongside breast cancer diagnosis. Therefore, this month we have donated to this special organization. We know that the battle with breast cancer is a long and hard one, but please know we support you. We are so pleased for our ability to donate to this special organization, especially during breast cancer awareness month. To each and every fighter and survivor or breast cancer please know that you are not alone, and are supported.
