'Batkid' is now cancer

Make-A-Wish turned him into ‘Batkid’ 5 years ago. Here’s where he is now!

Miles Scott, who made headlines at five years old when he "saved" the city of San Francisco as "Batkid" in back in November 2013, is still cancer free five years later, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. He's now in fifth grade and loves science and robotics.

Miles Scott is now 10 years old.

"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".

"He's doing great!" announced the Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area foundation, which helped make his crime-fighting dream come true in 2013 by staging several events across San Francisco as tens of thousands of people watched him lock up the Riddler during a bank heist and save a kidnapped victim from the Penguin.

Miles' day as Batkid included rescuing a damsel in distress tied up across the Hyde Street cable vehicle line and capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault.

The Make-A-Wish America foundation also went onto give a further update, explaining how turning Miles into Batkid truly helped him overcome his illness, getting him to a healthier stage in life.

The wish for Miles drew even the attention of then-President Barack Obama who issued his first ever Vine on Twitter congratulating Miles.

"Miles brought smiles and hope to children living with life threatening medical conditions in San Francisco and all over the world", the foundation said in a statement.

"It was an incredibly powerful boost to our organization", added Make-A-Wish's Jen Wilson, one of the organizers of Batkid's wish.
