Boy Who Sold Comic Drawings to Fight Leukemia Beats Cancer


This kid couldn’t have drawn up a better ending to his tale.

Aidan is a boy who sold several drawings he did of superheroes and other cartoon characters to help pay for his leukemia treatment. The move paid off because he just turned eight and announced the leukemia is gone.

Aidan loves to draw Wolverine, SpongeBob and monsters from his own imagination, and some of his creations were sold by his parents on Etsy to pay for his leukemia treatments. The “Aidan’s Monsters” Etsy shop was pulled in 2011 after his family could no longer maintain it following an outpouring of donations. Aidan, however, continues to draw, which you can see in the photo above. And now that he’s 100% cancer-free, we can hopefully expect more awesome drawings from this brave kid.
