If you came across a grown man in public wearing nothing but a fluffy pink tutu, you probably wouldn’t think much, other than maybe “this man needs some serious help". But when Bob Carey did it in public, he wasn’t the one in need of help.

Bob started taking pictures of himself in a pink tutu to make his wife Linda laugh during her treatment for breast cancer. It might an unconventional method, but it worked for Linda.

Just imagine: a burly, hairy man balancing on the edge of Hessian Lake in Bear Mountain State Park, contemplating the fall colors in Harriman State Park, hanging onto the side of the Kensico Dam in Valhalla. But why the <a href="" target="_blank">tutu</a>?

"This is the kind of guy he is. He is an artist. He takes care of things through his art," says Linda, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003. "During my treatment, anything he could take to make me laugh was worth it."

The Careys have published a book of photographs called "Ballerina," and four tutu calendars. With the net proceeds, the couple created the Tutu Project, a breast cancer nonprofit that raises funds for women, men and their families to ease the financial burdens that come with <a href="" target="_blank">breast cancer</a> diagnoses.

Now, he's making millions more feel the same way with his photos.
