Max Rice wants you to buy one of his limited-edition monster drawings so he can help fight the beast that is cancer.

The four-year-old Edmonton boy recently learned that his friend Kyla, 3, was diagnosed with leukemia, and decided he would channel his talent for inking scary monster portraits into a fundraiser to help Kyla and other families fight cancer.

According to the Edmonton Sun, Kyla's mom, Amber MacNeil, was just finishing treatment for a brain tumor when she learned her daughter had leukemia.

“It was just extremely overwhelming,” MacNeil told CTV Edmonton, of her daughter's diagnosis.

“The first few days were extremely hard. I think it was harder than when I was diagnosed with my stuff.”

After a conversation with his mom, Max pulled out his markers and decided to draw some monster masterpieces to sell online.

Since going on sale last Thursday, Max's drawings have raised more than $2,200, reports the Sun, and all 50 original drawings have sold. Sales are still strong, however, as Max also offers magnets and prints of his originals on his website.

Kyla's big sister, Kinley, also introduced some of her own monster drawings to the site Monday

Max's mom, Julie Rohr, told CBC Edmonton the orders are coming in from all over Canada and processing them will be a big task.

Most of the items for sale have a suggested price of between $10 and $20, but buyers can donate as much as they like.

Fifty per cent of the proceeds will go directly to the MacNeil family, while the other 50 per cent will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

McNeil told CTV Max's gesture leaves her almost speechless.

It's just… there's not even words. 'Thank you' just seems too small." McNeil told CTV of Max's gesture.

Check out Max and Kinley's artwork at the Papercastle Art Collective.
