In January, 38-year-old billionaire Jared Isaacman announced that he had purchased the four-seat commercial private flight from SpaceX. He chose to raffle two seats and give a ticket to someone from St. Jude’s Hospital, Tennessee. One of those seats now goes to doctor’s assistant Hayley Arceneaux.
As a 10-year-old, Arceneaux was himself hospitalized. She was suffering from bone cancer at the time. That’s why her knee had to be replaced and doctors placed a titanium rod in her left thigh. She is still limping and has regular leg pain, but she is approved for space flight. She will be appointed an in-flight medical officer.
“My battle with cancer really prepared me for this adventure,” says Arceneaux. “It made me strong and taught me to always expect the unexpected. That certainly comes in handy during space travel. It will also be a signal to many cancer survivors that anything is possible in life. ”
The launch is scheduled for October at Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center (Florida). Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/ex-cancer-patient-and-doctors-assistant-this-is-the-woman-who-wins-spacexs-first-private-spaceflight-abroad-2.html
The capsule will orbit the Earth for two to four days.
I hope you are in health and well.
