29 Year Old Cancer Survivor Chosen For First Civilian SpaceX Mission
(What's up ?) 1 week ago

A 29-year-old cancer survivor has been chosen to join the first all-civilian mission into outer space, which is tentatively planned for later this year.

Hayley Arceneaux, who works as a physician’s assistant at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, was selected after 37-year-old billionaire Jared Isaacman purchased the private flight from Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

When Arceneaux was just 10 years old she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer that typically affects the arms or the legs. The young girl, who wanted to be an astronaut when she grew up, began chemotherapy and underwent a surgery to replace part of her femur with an internal prosthesis.
