Nerd Watch: 7-Year-Old Cancer Patient's Wish to Fight Crime as Batman for a Day Comes True

Apr 17, 2012

It's stories like this that really make you want to celebrate the heck out of the people who dedicate their lives to granting the wishes of young children suffering from awful, life-threatening diseases. Take, for example, the outrageous stunt the Texas-based nonprofit A Wish with Wings pulled off for a 7-year-old cancer patient whose wish was to spend the day fighting crime as Batman. With the help of  the local police and fire departments, Kye, who suffers from leukemia, was able to dress up in a Batman costume and foil a bank robbery by the Joker, as well as a bomb scare at City Hall orchestrated by the Riddler. How cool is that? 

Check out the awesome video below, and you can scroll through a ton of pics over on their Facebook page. [via TDW]
