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.
Check out a sampling of Aidan's illustrations below:Aidan is a 5-year old boy who last month was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. It's rough, and he'll be in treatment for the next few years of his life, but the kid's prognosis is good. The medical bills are not. To help cover the costs, Aidan's father Wylie has been selling his son's incredibly cute and strangely compelling artwork online. Featuring depictions of Wolverine, Sponge Bob and a number of original creations, Aidan's artwork is flying off the virtual shelf, according to an update on his Facebook fan page, but there's still time to pick up some of these cute and inexpensive pieces to help a fellow fanboy beat cancer.
