The Austin Hatcher Foundation is partnering with the Yuri's Night to help send pediatric cancer survivors to space camp! With the help of former Austin Hatcher Foundation patient, Niko Blanks, the foundation will be offering our patients and families the opportunity to apply for a scholarship for space camp! 

Niko Blanks was treated as a child at the Austin Hatcher Foundation for a Grade II Fibrillary Astrocytoma. Following his diagnosis and treatment, Niko decided he wanted to give back in any way he could to children experiencing the same trials he had to overcome. Niko now a student studying Spaceflight Operations and wants to educate those going through the difficulties that come with pediatric cancer on the thing that he feels truly changed his life. This is where the idea for the Cosmic Odyssey Space Camp Scholarship Program was born!


Has your child ever dreamed of going to Space Camp? Here is your chance to spend a week at the Huntsville U.S. Space & Rocket Center museum at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center


Yuri’s Night is a grassroots annual event celebrating all that humanity brings with us as we explore the cosmos: music, art, science, culture, and each other!
