'Batkid' Is Cancer-Free 5 Years After Famously 'Saving' San Francisco
He is now in fifth grade, plays little league and loves science.
Miles Scott, who famously dressed up as Batman and "saved" San Francisco in 2013, celebrated an important milestone on Thursday: Five years cancer-free.
In 2013, Miles, who was diagnosed with leukemia at age 1, rode around in a black Lamborghini, defeating Penguin and Riddler. He was granted the wish by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which turned the city into Gotham and let Miles to rescue the San Francisco Giants’ Mascot, Lou Seal.
The day celebrated the end of his treatment.
Now 10, Miles is a fifth-grader and has been in remission for five years.
"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!" Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area said in a press release.
After the big day, Miles gained national attention and became affectionately known as “Batkid.”
President Obama even shouted out the then-5-year-old who stole America’s heart.
“Way to go Miles, way to save Gotham,” Obama said in the 2013 video.
Miles' story has since been turned into a Warner Bros. documentary titled “Batkid Begins.”
“Miles brought smiles and hope to children living with life-threatening medical conditions in San Francisco and all over the world,” the Make-A-Wish Foundation added.
