The Space Suit Art Project is a collaboration between the NASA Johnson Space Center's Engineering Directorate, ILC Dover, the International Space Station and children in hospitals around the world.

The project has two patches associated with two of its spacesuits hand-painted by childhood cancer patients. The "Hope 1" patch, which commemorates both the "Hope" spacesuit and the flight of "Courage," the first suit to be worn on the space station.

The "Expedition 2" patch commemorates the flight of "Unity," the project's third spacesuit, its first to be created by cancer patients around the world and its second to be worn on the space station. The "Expedition 2" patch was designed by Blake Dumesnil.

Any word on them selling these as fund raisers for research? I'd bet others (besides me) here would support it.

Cosmonauts Alexander Misurkin and Anton Shkaplerov will wear a patch representing the fifth spacesuit in the Spacesuit Art Project, "Victory," during their Expedition 54 spacewalk on Feb. 2, 2018.

Victory, a cover layer for an Orlan spacesuit painted by Russian pediatric cancer patients, was launched to the International Space Station on board the Progress MS-07 cargo spacecraft in October 2017.

The patch is just now in the open space outside the ISS.

More about the "Victory" patch, courtesy Victor (Russian):
In November 2017, Fyodor Yurchikhin proposed Alexander Misurkin to develop a Victory logo for EVA-44 (extra vehicular activity, or spacewalk). This idea has been supported by Misurkin and all Spacesuit Art Project members.

Misurkin proposed to use as a baseline one of the paintings on the basis of which the "Victory" spacesuit has been created. He selected Lyudmila Norsoyan's painting. Liudmila's personal battle against cancer developed in parallel with the "Victory" space suit's development.

Lyudmila, being a famous designer, still associates herself with a little girl in her heart dreaming of spaceflights. She sent to the cosmonauts who made her dream come true the gentle Earth greetings — a balcony-grown rose.

"I'm on the Moon like on the swings dreaming of life and offering a rose to the stars — sending it to the Universe sounding of the earth expectations where our 'Victory' is going! Great destiny of a simple spacesuit to become a divine illustration of the will to live, belief, hope and love drawn by the tender hands of little princes and princesses of our planet. And a great destiny of each of us — through surgeries, drips, chemotherapy and radiation – opened, with smile and tears, desperation and dreams – to win living and enjoying each day!" said Lyudmila Norsoyan.

At the request of Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin, Luc van den Abeelen, a Dutch painter, started a logo elaboration. He has already created quite a few amount of logos for the "Soyuz" spacecraft crews, ISS crews and EVAs.

Luc made the logo very quickly, just in two to three days and coordinated it with Misurkin. That was his second logo he coordinated with a cosmonaut being at ISS.

The logo is a circle with the yellow border. It has a navy blue. There is a Little Prince holding a rose in his hand and dressed in the "Victory" spacesuit in the center of the logo. The name "Victory" is located in the upper left corner. The wording of Alexander Nevsky — "God dwells not in strength, but in truth" became a motto of this logo at suggestion of Misurkin.

"Even if your enemy is a serious disease, even if this is a very powerful and terrible enemy as cancer, don't be scared and don't give up! Think only that the truth is on your side — you have a right for to live. Fight steadily and you'll win!" said Misurkin.

I would like to stress that all this information came from Fedor Yurchikhin, my schoolmate and a real friend!

It was his idea to produce this EVA patch. He produced patches in Russia.
