MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Johnny Crisstopher Children's Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, is to raise awareness of pediatric cancer and provide funds for research, treatment, and - ultimately - a cure. Unlike many other non-profit charities, 100% of your donation will go directly to this fight; NOT one cent will be deducted for ANY expenses, salaries, or overhead. Criss Angel has funded the operations of the foundation out of his own pocket since its inception in 2008. It has now become his life's mission (after working with childhood causes since 2001) when recently his own child, Johnny Crisstopher was diagnosed with leukemia in 2015 at 20 months old.


The American Cancer Society states children with cancer account for about 1% of all cancers diagnosed each year. Childhood cancers are rare and may differ from adult cancers in the way they grow and spread throughout the body, how they are treated and how they respond to treatment. Common types of childhood cancer include Leukemia, Lymphoma, Neuroblastoma, Wilms Tumor, and cancers of the brain, bone and soft tissue. Cancers in children can be hard to recognize right away because early symptoms are similar to those caused by more common illnesses of injuries. Unfortunately, the causes of most childhood cancers are unknown, though about 5 percent of cancers in children are caused by an inherited mutation, according to the National Cancer Institute. Due to major treatment advances, more than 80% of children battling with cancer now survive 5 years or more. Though, survival rates still vary depending on the type of cancer and other factors. While cancer in children is uncommon it is important to have your child checked by a doctor if they have unusual signs or symptoms that do not go away.


On September 12, 2016 Criss Angel brought together a host of amazingly talented superstar performances in an unforgettable event where 100% of every cent donated will directly fund pediatric cancer research and treatment.
