“L is for Leukemia” is site devoted to chronicling the journey of 5 yr old Aidan and his family as Aidan battles Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) with chemotherapy and amazingly enough crayons! You can check out the site here Aid for Aiden
Leukemia.. a word that strikes fear in every parent’s heart, a word that 5 yr old Aidan’s parents Wylie and Katie heard on the day that Aidan was diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in Sept of 2010. Per the website Aidan will face 2-3 yrs of chemotherapy, a long battle for such a tiny boy and his family.
Creativity and Courage
The truly beautiful thing here is how quickly this little boy and his family have rallied, added some other words beginning with the letter “C” to the the mix, those words being creativity, cheerfulness..and courage. You see Aiden loves scary things, he has a passion for monsters that would do Stephen King proud! This happy little fellow loves to draw, his specialty is monsters and he pursues his art with amazing zest! Aiden has his own Etsy shop where prints (and some originals ) of his work are sold. The proceeds for these sales are used to help defray the costs of treatment! You can check out this talented little artist’s work here Aidens Monsters
