Laughter Is Medicine
A beautiful story about taking ones own hardship and turning it around by authentically making others smile for a greater cause.
You might scratch your head when you see these photos and think “Why is that guy wearing a pink tutu?” The answer is, in equal parts, ridiculous and heartwarming. You see, this is Bob Carey. Bob’s wife has cancer. She was diagnosed with it in 2003 and The Tutu Project (as it’s now officially called) began as a way for Bob to express himself and make his wife smile. Then, it turned into something much bigger.
“Oddly enough, her cancer has taught us that life is good, dealing with it can be hard, and sometimes the very best thing—no, the only thing—we can do to face another day is to laugh at ourselves, and share a laugh with others.”
The Tutu Project is proud to announce that they were chosen by Deutsche Telekom to tell their story of how Bob and Linda Carey have chosen to deal with breast cancer through inspiration, courage and love.
“Things get great when People start sharing” — It’s under this motto that Deutsche Telekom will give true stories a platform as part of its future communication. The focus is on sharing special moments, made possible by Deutsche Telekom’s innovative telecommunications technologies.
“Sharing has never been more relevant for people than it is today — and it’s becoming more and more so. We are making sharing special moments the focus of our communication to underline the relevance of today’s telecommunications technologies,” said Hans-Christian Schwingen, Head of Brand Strategy and Marketing Communication at Deutsche Telekom. “Life writes countless true and moving stories. We will be picking up on some of them in future and giving them a platform.”
A special thanks to Deutsche Telekom for letting us share this story on our channel.
