The Titanic Museum Attraction ship and docking area will have an illuminated, all-pink makeover in October to call attention to the global community’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.

“Once again our big, 16-foot pink bow, the internationally recognized symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, will grace the side of our Branson ship, while 47 pink flamingos will stand in honor of the 46 passengers who survived Titanic but were later claimed by cancer, 7 from breast cancer,” says Mary Kellogg, Museum Attraction’s President/COO and Co-Owner.

Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Every 13 minutes a woman dies of it. This month, as it has for the past eight years, the Titanic Museum Attraction wants to help give breast cancer the “Pink Slip!”

The Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson opens daily at 9 a.m; reservations are required as many days, as the Titanic is sold out. Visit www.titanicbranson.com for more information on how the Titanic Museum Attraction turns pink.

Get your own pink ribbons ready to wear, and you can also put your own pink flamingos up.
