Photo of the Day: Real Men Wear Pink Tutus

Blossoms of Hope supporters donned pink tutus to give a gift to the Claudia Mayer Cancer Center on Wednesday.


People sometimes say 'real men wear pink', but do real men also wear pink tutus? If they're supporting the fight against breast cancer, they do.

On Wednesday morning supporters of Blossoms of Hope sported pink tutus to drop off a special photograph and book at the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center at Howard County General Hospital.

The photograph is a framed shot from photographer Bob Carey's book "Ballerina." The book consists of a series of photographs of the not-so-skinny Carey in different locations around the country wearing nothing but a pink tutu.

Carey was inspired to create the book to raise money to research breast cancer after his wife was diagnosed with the disease.

Blossoms of Hope executive director Victoria Goodman heard about Carey and sponsored his project. As a sponsor, Blossoms of Hope was given a copy of his book and a framed photograph, which it donated to the cancer center.

"It's a really good story," said Goodman. "I thought having the book for clients at the center would be inspirational."
