Young St. Jude Patients Still Talking About Space Chat

Childhood Cancer Survivor Hayley Arceneaux Answered Questions In Two Languages

The call of a lifetime took place on September 16th between four astronauts flying through space and children back on Earth who are being treated for cancer and other diseases at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 

St. Jude physician assistant Hayley Arceneaux was onboard the spacecraft, answering the kids' questions. Hayley is a childhood cancer survivor herself, giving hope to those who really need it.

During the Q&A, a variety of topics were covered:

  • "Are there cows on the moon?"
  • "How crazy was it going 1,000 mph out of the atmosphere?" 
  • "¿Cómo te peina el cabello en el espacio?"
  • "What is your favorite space food?"
  • "Is there such things as aliens in space?"
  • "Can you fall in space since there is no gravity?"

St. Jude patients who participated in the life-changing video call ranged in age from six to 15, including: 15-year-old Tyler, 14-year-old Jackson, 11-year-old Colton, 9-year-old Alana, 8-year-old Vanessa, 7-year-old Gabriel, 6-year-old Ava, 6-year-old Matthew and 6-year-old Luna.

Inspiration4 is the world's first all-civilian crew to orbit the Earth. Commander Jared Isaacman selected St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as its beneficiary and committed $100 million to St. Jude to inspire others to raise an additional $100 million to accelerate research on devastating childhood diseases and save children all over the world.

The Inspiration4 crew comprised Isaacman, Hayley Arceneaux, a St. Jude cancer survivor and physician assistant, Dr. Sian Proctor and Chris Sembroski. They splashed back down to earth on September 18th, 2021.

“That was a heck of a ride for us, and we’re just getting started,” Isaacman said.
