Pediatric Oncology Patients Become Space Explorers

Kimmel Cancer Center pediatric cancer patients had an out-of-this-world experience complements of the Space Suit EXPLORATION Project and Projekt Postcard. Patients chatted with astronaut Nicole Stott via Skype as they created artwork that will become part of a replica space suit and post cards that will be sent to the International Space Station.

Child Life teachers Lexie Delone and Kyra Georgas organized a space-themed party for patients, including treats like “Rocket Fuel” juice and Milky Way candy bars.
