Batman and Batgirl swept in to join families and children battling various illnesses were out at Mulconry's Irish Pub in Fairport on Sunday for a special surprise party.

The guest of honor? A four-year-old named Zoey, who has been battling brain cancer.

Batman and Batgirl arrived in their Batmobile and the children fighting illnesses were allowed to climb in.

Zoey's family says she is obsessed with Batman and because she has passed the survival period she was given by doctor, they are celebrating.

"It's tough," says Zoey's dad, Ben Daggett. 

"She's lost the ability to walk and stuff but she's in good spirit as you can see out there at the table. We're hanging in there but it's tough because of the changes and the symptoms that are coming on quickly."

Zoey's tumor was detected about a year ago and she is still getting treatment at University of Rochester, which the family says is going pretty well.
