Remember the little dude named Miles Scott who captured everyone’s attention back in 2013 when he dressed as Bat Kid and saved the city of San Francisco from bad guys? Yeah, it was one of the many awesome things that Make-A-Wish Foundation does, letting the then five-year-old go all around the city to battle Penguin and the Riddler.
Well, get ready for the best news of the day, because, now 10 years old, Miles Scott didn’t only kick the ass of those fictional villains in San Francisco, but he beat the cancer that he battled for most of his life, being declared 100 percent cancer-free by doctors now, per CBS News.
Having battled leukemia since he was just a year old, Miles Scott and his family got the good news today that the cancer has been in remission, which means he can actually do what kids are supposed to be doing at his age, rather than worry about a life-threatening disease.
“He has been in remission for five years so he is considered cancer-free!,” Jen Wilson, the marketing director of Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area told CBS News. Scott had been fighting leukemia since he was a year old.
“Miles has returned to being a typical kid — playing Little League, going to school, helping his family farm and even selling his first market goat in the local fair!” Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area said on its website. “Now 10 years old and in fifth grade, Miles loves science and robotics.”
Miles’ Bat Kid story was one that millions of people fell in love with back in 2013, with people as big as President Barack Obama even delivering a personal message to him back then to show support and encouragement.
While the legend of Bat Kid was a viral hit back then, Miles Scott’s story of fighting bad guys in San Francisco actually led to a 2015 documentary called “Batkid Begins,” which showed his struggle and journey through batting the disease.
This is awesome news, because, F*CK CANCER, it can’t keep a superhero like Bat Kid down.
