LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas based magician Criss Angel knows all too well what it is like to have a child battling cancer. His 5-year-old son has leukemia.
Angel has partnered with the CORE Group to support 100 families being treated at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, which is the state’s only pediatric cancer treatment center and where his own son has been treated.
Through his Johnny Crisstopher Children’s Charitable Foundation, Angel will provide $250,000 worth of donated food to the families. He is also donating a custom-made train set for the lobby of the cancer treatment facility so young patients can escape their reality.
The food, which will feed a family for six to eight weeks, will start being given out Thursday.
Additionally, Caesars Entertainment, Criss Angel and BASE Entertainment together are donating 1,000 tickets to future performances of MINDFREAK® once it re-opens to families and frontline workers at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and Summerlin Hospital, celebrating all their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Angel’s son Johnny Crisstopher has spent many hours in the clinic where he continues to receive treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
