Pink ribbons and Pink facemasks, symbols of hope and safety, set to call attention to this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month at the Titanic Museum Attractions. This marks the 6th year the museums have cleared the decks for this month-long crusade and the first time a giant pink face mask will frame the ships’ bow, announces President, CCO and Co-Owner, Mary Kellogg.
“These pink symbols are signs of the difficult times we’re experiencing today. They’re reminders to us all, that the search for a cancer cure and a COVID-19 vaccine are on-going and need our support,” says Kellogg. “While progress has been made in the breast cancer battle over the years, our struggle to reel-in the virus has been a tug-of-war. Now, with flu season upon us, taking precautions, like wearing a mask, is more important than ever if we’re going to keep ourselves, our loved ones and community safe.”
“All of us at our Titanic Museums have a particular interest in promoting the search for a cancer cure because it’s personal to us. We know that 46 passengers who survived Titanic, later died of cancer…7 of them from breast cancer. Their names, their stories and their legacies are the very foundation of our museums. They will always be honored and remembered here,” explains Kellogg.
