Criss Angel: '1,095' Is Magic Number in My Son's Cancer Fight (VIDEO)


Criss Angel's trying to pull off something more impressive than any of his tricks -- he's on a $1 million mission, inspired by his toddler's battle with cancer. 

Angel is using his fame to bring national attention to the horrors of fighting pediatric cancer. His 21-month-old son Johnny was diagnosed in October, and will be in treatment for at least the next several years.

Criss is making a documentary called "1095" ... the number of days Johnny will undergo chemo. Next year, he's aiming even bigger -- holding a charity event at the Luxor, where he does his Vegas act. He's footing the bill for the whole thing and wants to raise $1 million.

No date yet for the fundraiser, but Criss vows 100% of the proceeds will go to pediatric cancer research.
