What a day! I’m exhausted yet exhilarated. I’ve learned so much in one day; my thoughts are tumbling over one another.
Until I walked into the welcome dinner last night, I hadn’t realized how isolated I felt. Moving through each day, handling breast cancer, because what else could I do? But now I get it. As I embrace this community, I realize that I haven’t been alone, I just hadn’t opened the right door.
When I looked out the window of my hotel room I saw the image above. It couldn’t be more perfect for this moment.
There are a plethora of ideas and dreams that I want to share with you, but I must get some sleep. Tomorrow promises to be a fabulous day.

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.
