Peformance artist Tutu fights cancer with punk spirit

I wanted to publicise the story and work of the performance artist, Tutu, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. The cancer has now spread to her bones. Tutu has rejected what she calls the "pink and pretty" response to cancer (plangent memoir, stoic acceptance, relinquishment of earthly things) and instead begun a brilliant, frank, funny, salutary and dare I say it, sexy photo reportage project called Cancer Sucks. Image rights are protected to I haven't stripped any off the site: please click the link to see these brilliant photos. Tutu is also fundraising and raising awareness with her Punk Cancer T-shirt, image left, which can be purchased here and proclaims: Cancer Sucks - Fight It, Love It, Live It, Survive It.
