Make-A-Wish Foundation Makes a Boy Batman's "Robin" for the Day

Alex becomes Robin for a day: Cr; Make a Wish Foundation
This is the kind of story I really love, being a big superhero fan. It's things like this that really make me enjoy dressing up as the Green Lantern during Comic-con - giving kids a big thrill. This story is from California, where the Make-A-Wish Foundation gave a little boy with Leukemia a chance to be a superhero in a big way! - Rob

Inquistor and  KTLA-TV News:
A 7-year-old boy battling leukemia got a very special gift from the Make a Wish Foundation and the Anaheim, CA police department earlier this week.

On Monday, the Make-A-Wish foundation turned young Alex Lelenoa into a superhero for a day. Alex was diagnosed with Leukemia three years ago and his big wish was to become Robin, Batman’s sidekick.

To help make his dream a reality an Anaheim police officer showed up at the young boys door dressed as Batman. The officer then asked Alex to help him fight crime. The crime-fighting duo then loaded up in the original Batmobile and drove to Buena Park, CA, where a cast of characters dressed as pirates were waiting for a fight.

Alex and the officer fought the bad guys and then went on their way after a fun and swift victory.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
