As we celebrate #WomensHistoryMonth, we honor the legacy of women in STEM and fundraising who fulfill the @StJude mission. It's the perfect time as well to champion Hayley Arceneaux — cancer survivor, physician assistant, explorer — and her next adventure aboard @Inspiration4x.

Robert Spence Jr., one of the first Black pharmacists @StJude: “It changes you to be around children who are struggling with life-threatening illness, and they do it with such courage. I was pretty young. It changed me forever.” It has changed me as well.

It was a trip to NASA that set Hayley Arceneaux's sights on space. It was her treatment at @StJude for osteosarcoma that showed her anything was possible — college, world travel, dream job and, yes, even space travel. #Inspiration4StJude

Reflecting on Hayley Arceneaux’s wise counsel to a @StJude patient: “Cancer’s going to change you. But it’s going to make you who you are. And you’re going to be so much stronger because of it.” As she plans her trip aboard @Inspiration4x, we’re awed by her strength & compassion.

Hayley Arceneaux took off her patient ID band and put on a @StJude employee badge, a momentous and proud occasion for the physician assistant. Now she’ll don a space suit and take all of us — her ALSAC and St. Jude family — along for the ride of a lifetime.

Dwight Tosh, patient No. 17, who came to @StJude in 1962, has one word to describe the institution that saved his life: HOPE. Much of that hope lies in the St. Jude LIFE Study program and what it means for patients of today and tomorrow. #StJudeInspire

Thrilled to share aboard 1st all-civilian space flight on @Inspiration4x will be Hayley Arceneaux, @StJude physician assistant whose story goes much deeper. She’s also a former St. Jude patient — a cancer survivor, who represents hope for kids everywhere.

“Every generation leaves behind a legacy. What that legacy will be is determined by the people of that generation. What legacy do you want to leave behind?” Words to think about from the late John Lewis, who left a legacy of honor, dignity and impassioned service.

Dr. Rudolph Jackson came to @StJude in 1968, a moment when the Civil Rights Movement was at its peak, to research leukemia and help establish a sickle cell treatment program that would eventually become one of the largest in the country. #BlackHistoryMonth

The @StJude family lost 2 giants with the recent passing of former directors, Dr. Joseph Simone and Dr. Arthur Nienhuis, true servant leaders & dreamers who carried the torch of Danny’s vision, helping kids & families the world over during their lifetimes.
