Titanic Branson to be Flocked with Pink Flamingos during Cancer Awareness Month at the Ship
Hot Pink Symbols in the Fight Against Breast Cancer to Stand in Honor of 42 Voyagers Who Survived Titanic, but Couldn’t Escape Cancer.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a flock of hot pink, lawn flamingos coming home to roost on the grassy knoll at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson during Cancer Awareness Month in October, announces Museum Attraction co-owner, Mary Kellogg-Joslyn.
Each flamingo will display a name tag honoring one of 42 Titanic passengers or crew members known to have fallen victim to cancer – 6 of whom succumbed to breast cancer. The colorful flamingo gathering, and a large, oversized pink ribbon attached to the ship’s bow, will serve to encourage passersby’s to join the fight to beat cancer.
“In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the US. This year, as in the past, Titanic Branson will join the world wide effort to highlight the importance of cancer awareness, education and research,” explains Kellogg -Joslyn. “Cancer has touched all of us in some way and throughout the month of October we will honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors and support those who are the caregivers.”
