Aidan's Monsters!!!

About a month ago, I came across Aidan's facebook page and was instantly moved. Aidan is an amazing 5-year-old boy who was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on September 13, 2010. To help his family cover the medical bills and all the 3 years of chemo treatments he will have to go through, this brave little boy is selling his drawings of monsters! He has sold over 7,000 prints of his monster drawings so far!! His story is touching so many lives and inspiring so many people!

Sharing Aidan's love for monsters and all things scary, I purchased one of his prints! Having a love for werewolves, I got his Wolf-Man No. 1 print:

He reminds me a lot of myself at that age. Like him, I've been drawing monsters since I can remember, and am still fascinated by them. However, Aidan is a lot braver than I ever was, and my heart goes out to him during his road to recovery. To help keep his spirits up, I sent him a few monster goodies! Here is a picture of Aidan wearing one of my Gargoyle masks that his family posted on the Aid for Aidan Facebook page!

In fact, last week, Aidan and his monsters were featured on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer and John Berman. In his interview, Aidan is holding the Gargoyle mask I sent about 45 seconds in, you will see the horns! Watch the interview here and see more of Aidan's amazing story...
