A childhood cancer survivor, Hayley Arceneaux, has become one of the crew members for an all-civilian mission to space. Hayley had suffered from bone cancer since she was a child and part of her femur was removed while she was undergoing treatment.

Harley who was 10 years old then had thought that she couldn’t become an astronaut again as she had aspired to become one in the future.

However, luck smiled on her recently, when she has been selected as one of the crew members to travel to space. Although Hayley has no experience, she is she will be part of the all-civilian mission to space crew and this is really a big achievement for her.

This mission will take days and they will be orbiting Earth and conducting experiments. Shift4 Payments CEO Jared Isaacman will be leading this mission. Isaacman will be paying Elon Musk, the CEO and founder of Space X, for sending him and other civilians into orbit.

I really hope to show the children at St.Jude’s hospital that the sky’s not even the limit. That they can do anything. I never thought I’d be able to go to space, and really until this mission, you had to be physically perfect.

Hayley has now returned to St. Jude as a member of the staff and she will be helping other children who are in need. This childhood cancer survivor is the first person selected for the crew. Isaacman maintained that Hayley’s story will be a source of inspiration to others that you can go through a lot in life and still make.

The mission’s fourth seat will be given to someone with a distinct entrepreneurial vision and Isaacman has started receiving video applications. Isaacman will be selecting the remaining two crew members by this month’s end, and all crew members will undergo training at the SpaceX headquarters.
