The Tutu Project™ started from a single photographic creation. Taking “Ballerina” on the road became a way of coping for both of them after Linda’s re-diagnosis in 2006. Technology enabled Linda to share her husband’s crazy pictures with her “chemo-mates” during treatment. They laughed, and idea for the official The Tutu Project™ was born. They decided to dedicate this body of work to women with breast cancer.
Creating a foundation was always something the Carey’s dreamt about but only realized was possible after the Project started to go viral. The outpouring of support was unreal, and they wanted to share do something more than just create images.
