Sure, Batkid's in Remission


11/19/2013 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


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.

There are too many morons in this country. Ignore them like I do. In remission or not. ANY kid deserves to have his wishes come true.

I think many have also forgotten that the City of San Francisco also needed him to get his wish, So much GOOD attention to the people and the city of San Francisco did much to draw attention to beautiful people living there. You go, Bat-Kid, remission or not, you fought a hard battle, the true test of a hero.

My son had lymphoblastic leukemia when he was 6. He got a wish to go to Disney World world. He WAS in remission when we went. This year he turned 13 in march. On August 22 we heard the words the CANCER IS BACK. What people do not know is a lot of the time it comes back. He is currently in the hospital getting that poison in his body again. We hope he comes home by thanksgiving.

He like every other child on " The -Make-A- Wish " list deserve their little wishes, I think the hub bub is because of the coverage, and with that I think it was a bit much.

Too much hype or not is not the issue. Thanks to all those people who donate to Make A Wish Foundation to make BatKid dreams come true. I hope others donate to this great cause and see what this organization can and is willing to do to make a child battling with cancer or in remission forget about their disease for just one day and be a kid, their happiness is priceless.

He deserves the wish anyway, just for being a kid and putting up with the nonsense of the "adult" world around him. Every kid deserves a wish come true. Why don't we all work on making it happen? Nawww, whatever. Right.

So what if he's in remission? The child has been through more in his short life than a lot of adults have. Let him have his day. All haters can do is hate.

What's with some people wanting to dictate what other people deserve? They don't grant wishes because the kids "deserve" it . They grant their wishes to give them an amazing life experience before they depart this world. Are people really so bitter about their own lives, they can't just be happy for a kid?
