The kindergartner was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was 20 months old, but after years of exhausting treatment, his family says his last round of chemotherapy was in June. Now, the entire city of San Francisco -- and judging by social media, a pretty good chunk of America, too -- is celebrating.

Five-year-old Miles Scott hopped into the ultimate crime-fighting machine this morning in San Francisco to embark on what just might be -- and no, this is not hyperbole -- one of the greatest days ever for any little kid.

Though maybe it's the second greatest for Miles, falling in right behind the day he learned his leukemia was in remission.

What a story!  Diagnosed at 20 months, at five years old " his last round of chemotherapy was in June." Oh my goodness, how could he and his family go through that? I've only had seven months of treatment and I wondered when it would be over! He is something else!

Plucky kid.
