Cancer Survivor Fulfills Lifelong Dream, Joins Civilian Mission into Space


A 29-year-old bone cancer survivor soon will take part in an out-of-this-world adventure.

According to the BBC, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital physician assistant Hayley Arceneaux is set to join a civilian mission into space.

The space launch, scheduled for near the end of this year, is a “pet project” of billionaire Jared Isaacman, who revealed last month that he intended to use the spaceflight as an opportunity to raise money for St. Jude.

Isaacman also offered one of the four available spacecraft seats to a staff member at the hospital. As the billionaire told the BBC, Arceneaux “represented the mission’s spirit of hope.”

Arceneaux was a former patient at the St. Jude hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she now works. The hospital announced the cancer survivor’s selection for the world’s first all-civilian space mission in a tweet on Feb. 22.
