According to Cure Search, every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer. 12% of children diagnosed with cancer do not survive. Children’s cancer affects all ethnic, gender and socio-economic groups, and is the leading cause of death by disease for children today.
Criss Angel has always had a special interest in helping children. He’s worked with Make-A-Wish and the Children’s Pediatric Cancer foundation. But when he learned his young son, Johnny Crisstopher, had Leukemia he doubled down on making his mission to end childhood cancer. In the exclusive interview on Inside Quest, Criss said:
The reason why I am blessed with so much success–beyond my wildest dreams, is to do my work for the greater good of children. And that is my life mission right now, that trumps my show, trumps my TV show, trumps anything I do. All of this is to be utilized to bring awareness, research and treatment, to hopefully find the cure for pediatric cancer to make it eventually disappear.
September 12th is the biggest event of my life. On this stage, I’m trying to raise $1 million in one night. 100% of the proceeds will go to Pediatric Cancer for Research and Treatment, I’m funding it out of my own pocket. I have incredible celebrity fiends that are joining me on the stage like Jerry Lewis, Tony Orlando, Wayne Newton, Siegfried and Roy, Gary Oldman, Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora, Gene Simmons of Kiss, I even got Oprah Winfrey, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Elton John, to contribute.
Criss Angel shared his message with us, and we’re returning the favor. However, we need your help to get the word out! We at Inside Quest are joining him on this mission to end childhood cancer, but we’re issuing a HUGE challenge worthy of the legend himself–Criss Angel. We need this episode to reach 50,000 THUMBS UP on YouTube and we’ll fly one lucky fan out to Las Vegas to present a $10,000 check to Criss Angel at the fundraiser event in Las Vegas.
Spread the word! By liking this video, and sharing Criss Angel’s message we’ll be making critical steps in the fight against pediatric cancer.
