Criss Angel Cancels Las Vegas Shows To Visit His Son Battling Cancer

Magician Criss Angel just got a little bit of magic in his personal life.

After Angel announced his 2-year-old son, Johnny Sarantakos, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia last October, Angel says his son is finally on the mend.

"Johnny is technically in remission, thank God," the Vegas performer (born Christopher Sarantakos) revealed in an interview with Us Weekly. "I believe he will be healed."

The little boy has been receiving treatment in Australia where he live with his mother, Angel's ex-wife, Shaunyl Benson. Despite the good news, Angel revealed it hasn't been an easy road. Johnny is still undergoing chemotherapy treatments, blood transfusions and spinal taps on his way to recovery.

"What doctors found is you have to continue treatment to kill all the cells, as there is no guarantee," the illusionist explained.

Throughout his son's treatment, Angel has shared adorable photos of his son on his social media accounts.

After his son's big fight against cancer, Angel was also inspired to help fund research for the disease and is holding a benefit show and auction at the Luxor, Heal Every Life Possible, where he hopes to raise $1 million for pediatric cancer research.
