A 29-year-old bone cancer survivor will be rocketing into orbit on SpaceX’s first private flight this fall.

Haley Arceneaux is a physician assistant at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the same place she was treated for her cancer years ago. Arceneaux will become the youngest American in space, beating NASA record-holder Sally Ride, when she blasts off with billionaire Jared Isaacman. Two others still need to be picked for the mission that SpaceX is calling Inspiration4.

And of course, if you’d like to help more kids grow up to realize their dreams just like Haley’s doing, you can donate to St. Jude right here.
