(Home) Inspiration 9

This is a bit different from my regular inspiration posts...

Meet Aidan a 5-year old who loves monsters. On September 13, 2010 he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). He pulled through his first round of chemo . Unfortunately, he must go through 2 to 3 more years of chemo treatments and everything that goes along with that.

While in chemo and resting at home Aidan has been spending quite a bit of time drawing.

In order to help his family out they started selling prints of his works as well as a few originals on Etsy. All proceeds will go directly to Aidan’s medical bills.

I have been really moved by this story, and a monster from Aidan should really make it into my home, as a personal reminder that it could happen to everyone. And also hoping that Aidan will get better soon.

  1. This is so sad... I hope Aidan get better soon. His story must have touched a lot of people, there was an auction made on Regretsy a few days ago to help with the medical bills.

    Let's hope Aidan beats this monster and grows to become a successful cartoonist- he clearly is talented!
