Miles, according to Make-A-Wish, has beat leukemia. He's a 10-year-old fifth-grader who plays Little League baseball and helps on his family farm.

Miles had fought against leukemia since he was 1 1/2 years old. He has been in remission for five years and only has to see his oncologist once a year, the foundation said.

His wish to become Batkid was a celebration of the end of Scott’s treatment, Make-A-Wish said.

Miles' mother, Natalie, recently asked Make-A-Wish to allow her to pay it forward and volunteered to be a wish granter.

Warner Bros. has also made a documentary telling Miles' story called "Batkid Begins."
