Every year Titanic honors cancer survivors
Titanic Museum Attraction to Be Awash in Pink During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
For the 8th straight year the Titanic Museum Attraction’s Branson ship and docking area will have an illuminated, all-pink makeover to call attention to the global community’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, announces Mary Kellogg, Museum Attraction’s President/COO and Co-Owner.
According to the American Cancer Society, in 2022, an estimated 287,500 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. as well as 51,400 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. Awareness, early detection, preventative measures and quality treatment are key to the cure.
“Once again our big, 16ft, pink bow, the internationally recognized symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, will grace the side of our Branson ship. A large pink facemask will cover the ship’s bow and 46 pink flamingos will stand in honor of the 46 passengers who survived Titanic but were later claimed by cancer, 7 from breast cancer,” Kellogg says.
Every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Every 13 minutes a woman dies of it. This month, as it has for the past seven years, the Titanic Museum Attraction is taking action to help lower those numbers and give breast cancer the “Pink Slip!”
