Boy Who Sold Wolverine Drawings To Pay For Leukemia Treatments Celebrates 8th Birthday Cancer-Free

It’s amazing when a story like this has a happy ending. Aidan, a boy who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia a little less than three years ago and who loved to draw pictures of Wolverine, Spongebob and his own monster creations — so much so that his family sold some of those drawings to help pay for treatments – just celebrated his 8th birthday. The cancer? It’s gone, the Aid for Aidan Facebook page has announced.

The “Aidan’s Monsters” Etsy shop actually came down in February 2011, after the family received nearly 8,000 donations and it just became too much to manage. That doesn’t mean Aidan hasn’t been drawing, though. The latest picture of the young artist with his newest monster was posted to the Aid for Aidan Facebook page Friday:

Here’s to a bright future of more artwork from Aidan!
