Best Video Ever: 7-Year-old With Cancer Gets to be Batman for a Day (You Will Cry Over the Awesomeness)

Heath Ledger's epic joker portrayal has nothing on this volunteer actor.

I’m not sure you can handle the awesomeness of humanity so early in the morning but I’m gonna give it to you anyway.

But consider yourself warned.  Within the first twenty seconds I felt the telltale tingly signs in my nose and by thirty seconds in I was bawling like a baby.

As the Huffington Post reports 7-year-old Kye’s greatest wish is to be Batman. A superhero battling the bad guys.

Kye is constantly fighting his own battle against leukemia so the Arlington Police and Fire departments teamed up with the non-profit ‘A Wish With Wings’ to make the little boy’s Batman adventures come to life.

Oh, this was not your standard kid in a batman costume flitting about the sterile halls of some hospital, people. Folks went all out for the brave little boy. There were professional actors and a set and film crew large enough to rival the making of an actual batman movie starring Christian Bale. Except this epic film stars none other than Kye as the Caped Crusader.

Watch as he takes on the Joker in this video shot by the Arlington Police. Seriously. This is SO worth your time.  I’m telling you, I cry at the 35 second mark every single time.
