MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - When you think about superheroes, any number of Marvel or DC characters may come to mind.  

But, right now, instead of saving Gotham, Batman is helping a teenage girl who is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer get her last wish.

John Buckland, with Heroes for Hire, needs your help to make 15-year-old Shianna's last wish to stay here in Myrtle Beach in May with the Batman Mustang come true.

"We have known Shianna since 2013 and it's amazing because I met her when she was first diagnosed," Buckland said. "She has undergone more procedures than I can even count, but her resilience, her positive vibes, everything about her, is just something. She's just someone (who) inspires the world. She inspires me."

Heroes for Hire will be sending Shianna, her family and a few friends to Compass Cove in Myrtle Beach from May 7 through May 14.

If you would like to help make Shianna's last wish extra special, donations are being accepted for tickets. Call her mother Katrina at 304-928-2577.
