Inspired by the bravery and resilience of children battling cancer, the St. Jude Hall of Heroes experience introduces viewers to St. Jude patients stylized as superhero statues. Viewers hear directly from patients and their families, celebrating their stories and spreading awareness of childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. “It’s as close as we can get to showing you how we feel about these patients,” says Dan Yohey, an enhanced video specialist at St. Jude and its fundraising arm, ALSAC.
Everyone can watch a 360° trailer of the experience on Facebook and in VR starting today, and Hall of Heroes will be on display in select Best Buy locations beginning this Friday, December 6. The experience will also be coming to the Oculus platform in early 2020.
