Make-A-Wish

Sure, Batkid's in Remission

But HE STILL HAS CANCER

The Make-a-Wish Foundation has a message for the cold-hearted jerks who complained Batkid didn't deserve his bat-wish because he's in remission -- HOW DARE YOU?!!

If you haven't heard, Make-A-Wish really outdid itself -- turning San Francisco into Gotham City for 5-year-old cancer patient Miles Scott, who wanted to be Batman for a day.

Miles has been battling lymphoblastic leukemia since he was 20 months old, but some (heinous) people on the Internet have had the audacity to say he didn't deserve his wish because he's currently in remission.

Make-A-Wish rep Josh deBerge says that's just wrong, telling us ... "We would never penalize a child for getting better."

According to the rep, when Miles was referred to the foundation he met all three eligibility requirements: 1) a life-threatening medical condition, 2) between 2-and-a-half and 18 years old, and 3) hadn't received a wish from another wish-granting organization.

And Josh says that's all that matters.

Suck it, haters.

If this kid was Batman does that mean his parents were killed too?

I have a nephew who fought a very, very tough battle with cancer and won. He is a wish kid. I have a granddaughter who is in the middle of her battle with cancer, she will win. She will also be a wish kid. Anyone who thinks these kids do not deserve to be a wish kid obviously has not watched a child battle for their life. To those of you who do not think they deserve it should rot in hell.

What makes anybody feel entitled to dictate what a private, charitable organization does with their time and money? These aren't your tax dollars. Nobody is forcing you to contribute. If you want to spend your free time and money knitting sweaters for stray cats, then God speed. I am personally okay with a 5 year old, who has missed out on all of the innocent joys of ages 1, 2, 3 and 4 having one great day. The fact that he's in remission now doesn't change what he and his family have been through, and it doesn't guarantee that he won't be sick again next year. Anybody who would complain about this is just the type who needs something to complain about.

Miles Certainly Does Deserve everything Make-A-Wish and The Citizens of San Francisco Did for him on that Day. What that Kid Had to go through with his Cancer and the Treatments he had to endure, That is H E L L in itself.

It really shocks me that adults would say such a thing towards this boy........ people these days are heartless, self absorbed, un-ethical, soulless for the most part. This generation of ME ME ME ME needs to be extinct. Thank you social media for making people even worst than they already are...and for showing peoples true colors.

Every child deserves their wish. Some get them, some don't.

I wonder if these two people live with themselves everyday, If someone was diagnosed with cancer, in remission or not, they have cancer. I wonder how they would feel if their children went through what this beautiful child has been through they would change their tunes. GOD BLESS BATKID!!!! I am happy his dream came true and for the WISH Foundation thank you for making wishes of these children coming to life!!!
