'Batman' takes boy battling respiratory illness on Batcave tour

TOP SECRET LOCATION -

Holy Batcave, Batman!

A camper with Camp Soaring Eagle got a special surprise on Sunday: visiting Batman's top secret hideout, the Batcave.

Charles Keller, of Phoenix, transformed a warehouse into Batman's 1960s-style Batcave and holds tours for ill kids once every month or so.

The hideout has a Batmobile and replicas of Batman's special crime-fighting equipment.

"It's the thing that kinda gets me up and gets me going in the morning. This has now really become what I do as my profession and I have the greatest job in the whole world," said Keller.

His goal is to make the children forget their worries and feel like superheroes instead.

The guest of honor on Sunday was 9-year-old Kenyon Antone, who is battling respiratory illness.

"When he's here having a good time, he doesn't think of his illnesses. He's being a kid, he's being a 9-year-old child having a good time," said Bernadette Alvarez, Antone's mother.

Keller donated $1,000 to Camp Soaring Eagle to make sure more kids like Antone get a chance to visit the Batcave.

Video: FOX 10's Jessica Flores follows the Bat-signal to see Antone's dream come true.
