Las Vegas entertainer Criss Angel is doing more than magic on the Las Vegas Strip. He’s partnering with the Make-A-Wish foundation to make pediatric cancer disappearDuring an interview with Kim and Dana Wagner Friday, Angel explained his motivation for the new partnership. His own 2-year-old son was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

“My mission in life, and the reason I believe that God put me in this situation, it to be your voice. To share your stories and the sentiment of going through what no parent ever wants to hear, that their son or daughter has to go through,” he said.

Angel said he’s doing everything he can to help not only his son but all sick kids around the world.

Monday, September 12, Criss Angel hosts a star-studded performance at Luxor Resort and Casino. Dee Snider, frontman of Twisted Sister, and Las Vegas’ own Imagine Dragons will be in attendance. Their hope is to raise one million dollars in the fight against pediatric cancer.
