Little did he know that his drawings would help him raise money to pay for his medical bills and make him a budding Picasso!

Aiden has managed to sell 2,500 pieces of his artwork for £7.50 each, raising a total of £19,000 to help treat his acute lymphoblastic leukemia, reports the Metro.

With two years left of treatment to go, the money raised was undoubtedly welcome and Aiden couldn’t be more grateful.
