A young Edmonton boy has raised a monstrous sum to fight cancer by selling off his drawings of frightening creatures.
4-year-old Max Rorh started creating the pictures two weeks ago to support cancer research. His mother says Max chose to draw monsters, because it helped him understand the disease.
“We thought if we reached a thousand [dollars] that would be really good,” said Julie Rohr.
“That was what we were hoping for in the beginning and reached that in the first twenty hours, and haven't looked back since.”
Max hit that goal and kept going. He ended up raising $11,000 - half of it going to the Leukemia Society and the rest destined for a family dealing with cancer.
