Calder Sloan, 'Mr. Awesome': Push for child's drawing to go viral after drowning

MIAMI - The drawing titled "Mr. Awesome," created by a 7-year-old who died while swimming in his backyard pool last week, is gaining attention on social media.

Calder Sloan died April 13, just days after his birthday.  He had been swimming in his family's pool when he was shocked in the water.  His family believes he may have been electrocuted by a light that sent charges into the water.

Prior to his passing, Sloan had drawn a self-portrait called "Mr. Awesome."  The family and friends of the little boy are hopeful the drawing will become a viral sensation on social media. 

Tuesday, Miami Heat star Chris Bosh shared a photo of himself holding a picture of the drawing.  Sloan was an avid Heat fan.
