Five years ago a young leukemia patient’s big wish was granted after he transformed San Francisco into Gotham City, but now an even bigger wish has come true for ‘Batkid’ – he’s cancer-free.
Miles Scott, who’s now 10-years-old, stole hearts around the world in 2013 when the Make-A-Wish Foundation let him soar around as a superhero for a day.
Almost 20,000 people helped transform San Fran into Gotham City from the “Batman” franchise.
On Nov. 15, 2018, Make-A-Wish happily announced that Scott is now living his life without a trace of cancer.
“Since his crime fighting day five years ago, 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!” the foundation said on their website. “After fighting his own heroic battle with leukemia since he was a year old, Miles visits his oncologist once a year, and has been in remission from leukemia for the past five years.”
Since granting Scott’s wish, the foundation said that they’ve seen a huge increase in donations and volunteers. Over 2,000 wishes have been granted since ‘Batkid’ took over San Francisco.
After news broke of Miles’ remission, people on social media couldn’t help but share their excitement for the cancer survivor.
