Magician Criss Angel shared some happy news about his 2 year old son today who has been told he is in remission from leukaemia.
Johnny Sarantakos is the 2 year old son of Criss Angel (real name Christopher Nicolas Sarantakos) and singer-songwriter Shaunyl Benson.
The Las Vegas based magician said his boy is in remission eight months after being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
“Johnny is technically in remission, thank God,” the 48-year said, “I believe he will be healed.”
It’s been a tough road for the young battler. Johnny has had to undergo chemotherapy, blood transfusions and spinal taps. The two year old is still receiving medical care in Australia where he lives with his mum.
“What doctors found is you have to continue treatment to kill all the cells, as there is no guarantee,” Angel explained.
The illusionist found out about his son’s cancer diagnosis in October 2015 and cancelled a number of his Las Vegas shows to fly to Australia to be with his son.
Criss often shares photos of his beautiful boy on Instagram sharing the emotional journey with his fans and followers.
