Back in 2013, 5 years Miles Scott fought leukemia and had a desire: Batkid for a day. His wish came true – five years ago he was able to distinguish himself as his favorite superhero and "save" the city of San Francisco. His story became viral and ends today even happier.
Miles has been officially cancer free for five years. The now ten-year-old is again a "typical child," the Make-A-Wish-Greater Bay Area announced on its website.

"Miles is another typical kid – he plays Little League, goes to school, helps his family farm and even sells his first goat at the local fair!" said the organization. The fifth grader has also developed an affinity for science and robotics.
When Miles asked for the first time to ask Make-A-Wish Forgetting Batkid to forget him Illness for a day transformed the entire city in Gotham when the little hero met with the police to help with the "fight against crime".
While thousands of people cheered him on, Miles released the San Francisco Giants mascot Lou Seal, which even earned him a key to the city. The message of his heroism found its way into the White House and prompted President Obama to record a message for the hero.
In 2015, a documentary film, Batkid Begins was published, in which Miles' life was recorded from his diagnosis to his superheroic turn.
The day he spent as Batkid was special because he also marked the end of his treatments. Today, Miles only has to visit an oncologist every year. This means that the retired crime fighter can spend more time as a brother of his two siblings.
