Inspiration 4 presented Hope, the second astronaut for the all civilian space mission. But there are two more seats to reveal in four days.
As stated in our previous article, Jared had yet to present the rest of the crew.
Now, we know who the second astronaut will be. Hayley Arceneaux represents hope on this all civilian adventure to space. And here’s why. Part of this venture aims to fund St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As it turns out, Hayley is a worker there and a previous patient. She survived cancer as a child. Now, aims to help children in a similar situation to find the strength to surpass that struggle.
It’s an incredible honor to join the Inspiration4 crew. This seat represents the hope that St. Jude gave me — and continues to give families from around the world, who, like me, find hope when they walk through the doors of St. Jude. When I was just 10 years old, St. Jude gave me the opportunity to grow up. Now I am fulfilling my dreams of working at the research hospital and traveling around the world. It’s incredible to be a part of this mission that is not only raising crucial funds for the lifesaving work of St. Jude but also introducing new supporters to the mission and showing cancer survivors that anything is possible.— Hayley Arceneaux
Inspiration 4 Hope Astronaut
It’s a beautiful story, really. When you see the interviews, you get a distinct impression that “the sky isn’t the limit”. Hayley want’s to pass along this sence of limitless future to every child she comes into contact with. Check it out for yourself:
Two Seats Left
After Inspiration 4 Presented Hope, we still don’t know who will be filling out Generosity and Prosperity seats. Two people will be selected on the 28th Feb 2021 from within one of St Jude’s donors and one entrepreneur that registers on Jared’s Shift4Shop platform. If you jump to their website, you can now see a countdown to this event on the main page.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for this development with keen interest.
Until then, keep in touch for more updates on this story.
