Several weeks have passed since I attended the Living Beyond Breast Cancer #HearMyVoice outreach program. I already raved about the phenomenal advocates I met but did I mention the staff? They are a warm, kind and dedicated group. Diary, they give so much. There are hundreds of attendees, and I’ll bet that not one of them would say that their needs were not met.
Now the work begins. My goal is to educate the general public about Metastatic Breast Cancer, what it’s like to live with this disease and the need to allocate more research dollars to find a cure. My project will involve legislation in some way, I have a lot to learn to I pinpoint what I want to do.
Before I sign off, I have to say how much I love the group picture! On challenging days it will be a way to remind myself that I am not alone.

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.
