Batkid in remission

Batkid saved San Francisco five years ago, and his cancer's been in remission ever since

Five years after he saved San Francisco from villainy, received cheers from a crowd of 20,000 and kudos from the president, Miles Scott — the Make-A-Wish recipient who, for a day, became Batkid — lives today in remission from leukemia. 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation announced that Miles, now in fifth grade, enjoys life as "a typical kid" and has seen reduced signs of the blood cancer each year since he donned the cape and cowl in 2013. 

After Miles, who was diagnosed with the life-threatening illness at age 1, told the foundation that he wanted to be Batman, the entire Bay Area became swept up in making the then-5-year-old's wish come true.
