It’s late, but I need to share a beautiful moment from my day. I was invited to participate in an outreach program for metastatic breast cancer called #HearMyVoice hosted by Living Beyond Breast Cancer in Philadelphia. At the welcome dinner, I gazed around the room, and my spirit soared. Here sat a group of passionate women and men living with metastatic breast cancer and they were happy! That statement may sound odd but living with this disease takes a toll on mind, body, and spirit. For one lovely, shining moment I stopped to experience the good emanating throughout the room. Diary, it’s going to be a fabulous weekend, I can feel it in my bones.
P.S. Check out the fabulous view from my window!

Linda Carey is the co-creator of The Tutu Project and President of the Carey Foundation. Bob and Linda Carey have been together since 1986. When Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003, Bob decided to expand on an odd project he’d started: he’d taken a few pictures of himself in a pink tutu, and the unlikely images cheered Linda up and gave both of them something to focus on other than her diagnosis. Linda’s positive approach to living has become a beacon of hope for cancer patients across the world.
