Christian Bale Fulfills the Wish of a Dying Boy Who Wants to Meet Batman

Christian Bale

Last November, 4-year-old Jayden Barber was diagnosed with a terminal case of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) leukemia. Jayden’s dying wish was to meet Batman, so friends and family teamed up to have local actors pose as Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and Captain America and meet Jayden as he rode in a Batmobile and flashed the Bat signal.

But shortly after that event, Jayden got a call from the “real” Batman, Christian Bale, who flew Jayden and his entire family to Disneyland, where the two finally got to meet. And you’ll never believe what happened next.

Jayden is only the 20th person in the world to suffer from MDS leukemia and his parents were told in July that their son was terminally ill and likely wouldn’t make it through the year. But then came Batman.

After reading about the initial Batman event to support Jayden, Bale flew the young boy and his family to California and spent the day with them at Disneyland. When he met Bale, Jayden asked him, “Can I help you beat up bad guys?” They didn’t beat up any bad guys but they did get rid of one killer.

Jayden and his parents were informed that his terminal cancer has gone into remission. There’s obviously a long way to go before he is 100% healthy but he’s on the road to recovery.

Now we’re not saying Bale’s visit had anything to do with the miraculous medical recovery by Jayden (?…), but it might have been the emotional spark the little kid needed to stand up against cancer.
