ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- A three-year-old Missouri boy is using his painting skills in an effort to save his life. His family plans to sell some of the toddler's paintings to help pay for his cancer treatment.

Liam Myrick is like most three-year-olds. He likes cars, trucks and painting pictures.

"I want to eat at my house," Myrick said.

For now, he spends his days and nights at Children's Hospital in St. Louis. Last July, His mom Shawna took him to the doctor after he became sick.

"They ordered a CT and our lives changed," said Shawna Myrick.

He was diagnosed with stage four Neuroblastoma. Doctors had found a tumor on top of his kidney. The toddler underwent excruciating chemotherapy. Just recently, he had a bone marrow stem cell transplant on the January 10, which is why the brave little boy has to remain in the hospital.

To help defray the costs of his medical expenses, the Myricks are auctioning Liam's work on Facebook. To learn more click here.
