Christian Bale Visits Dying Boy Whose Last Wish Was to Meet Batman
Late last year, 4-year-old Jayden Barber was diagnosed with a terminal case of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) – a very rare type of leukemia. Jayden’s last dying wish was to meet Batman, so Jayden’s friends and family rounded up some local actors and got them to dress up like Batman, Spider-man, Wonder Woman, and Captain America then rode Jayden around in a Batmobile.
Enter Christian Bale.
Bale heard about Jayden’s wish and what his friends and family did for him, so Bale decided to fly Jayden and his entire family to Disneyland where he spent the day with them giving Jayden the chance to meet the ‘real’ Batman. But that’s not even the best part of this story.
After the trip, Jayden and his family got the news that his terminal cancer was now in remission. Jayden is not quite out of the woods yet, as he still has a long road to recovery, but what great news!
Of course Christian Bale cannot magically cure cancer with just his presence, but who’s to say that his visit didn’t give Jayden just enough psychological strength to keep the fight going?
