A report from San Francisco came in on Wednesday which states that Miles Scott, also known as Batkid, has been declared free of cancer.
Scott made headlines in 2013 when Make-a Wish Foundation transformed him into a superhero he always wanted to be. San Francisco saw thousands of people gathered around the town, while Scott was driven in a black Lamborghini in the whole town.
After five years of struggle, Miles has finally beaten cancer. Here’s the announcement of that:

“This wish meant closure for our family and an end to over three years of putting toxic drugs in our son’s body,” Miles’ mother, Natalie, told The San Francisco Chronicle.
Although it was a big event, Miles actually believed that he’s the Batkid.
“He just thought he was doing his job,” said Jen Wilson, one of the Make-a-Wish directors who put the citywide event together. “He took his work seriously. He thought Batkid might need to stick around.”
She added, “It was an incredibly powerful boost to our organization. Batkid was responsible for that.”
His story was revealed Batkid Begins.
