Just as the internet has opened new doors for entrepreneur opportunities it has also provided a way for two special children: Aidan and Carly to express themselves online.
Aidan loves monsters. In fact, Aidan loves monsters so much that his family sells his prints on his website. However, this is because he was diagnosed with Leukemia in September 2010 and his monster drawings help the family. The idea worked so well that the orders piled up to 2,500 prints. The character of Aidan’s family is best described with an excerpt from their “About” page:
“We are all heartbroken that he has to go through everything that goes along with chemo, but as his father, Wylie, has said it is a tragedy that will ultimately be defeated by love. We are confident that after all is said and done Aidan will have his health back, but first we must take this journey through leukemia.”
Carly Fleischmann has lived with autism all her life with her symptoms include the inability to speak, making odd noises and hitting herself. About four years ago after working with symbols and pictures on a keyboard, Carly began to express herself via her computer. What has happened since has been a remarkable breakthrough in not only the case of Carly but for autism patients around the world. Today, she has written several articles about what it’s like to live with autism and appeared on Larry King.
