Aidan's Monsters!

This isn't a street art related post, but it is something that I came across last week and wanted to share...

"Aidan is no ordinary 5 year old boy, in fact he is quite extraordinary. What sets him apart from most kids is his love for all things scary. He loves monsters, clowns, drawing, and dressing up. He does not wait for Halloween to roll around to have an excuse to wear a costume. And you better believe while in costume he will break character for nothing.

Another thing that makes Aidan different than most children is that on September 13, 2010 he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).  He was strong and pulled through his first round of chemo all while teasing his nurses and visitors. Although this was a small victory Aidan, unfortunately, must go through 2 to 3 more years of chemo treatments and everything that goes along with that."

Sometimes I get bummed out by how unfair the world can be. But the good news is the same world can come together and fight back for a good cause. Aidan is a really great artist already at age 5, and you can buy some of his great monster drawings through Aidan's Monsters on Etsy. They are super affordable and the proceeds are used to help pay for his medical bills.
