Okay, grab the tissue box. To help support his wife during her fight with breast cancer a man has traveled the world in a pink tutu taking ridiculous - and yet beautiful - photos to keep her spirits up.

After Linda Carey was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 her husband Bob began photographing himself in nothing but a pink tutu. No, Bob wasn't trying to show off his ballerina bod, rather he wanted to make his wife laugh in the midst of her struggle.

“When Linda would go in for treatment, she would take the images on her phone and the women would look at them and it would make them laugh and make the time pass,” Bob said.

Over the years Bob has continued making the photos and The Tutu Project was born.

Check it out! You can even get a calendar of Bob's photos with proceeds benefiting women with breast cancer.
