Aspen received treatment for a neuroblastoma tumor at 5 months old at the hospital's Jimmy Everest Center, People reports. She will celebrate her third birthday next month after several successful treatments. 

In 2016, the 42-year-old donated $600,000 to the Oklahoma Children's Hospital while in town for a scheduled tour stop. Shelton has been supporting the hospital for years and continues to use his voice for all the right reasons.
