We’re Not Gonna Take It


Criss help-posterCriss Angel is a renowned magician who has worked with childhood causes since 2001.

When his young son Johnny Crisstopher was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2015 at the tender age of just 20 months old, Chris took this one step further and started the Johnny Crisstopher Children’s Charitable Foundation in 2008 to raise Awareness of Paediatric Cancer and provide funds for research, treatment, and – ultimately – a cure.

Criss Angel has funded the operations of the foundation out of his own pocket since inception so that 100% of the donations can go directly to this fight against Childhood Cancer.

Criss recently directed Dee Snider in a remake of Twisted Sister’s rebellious Eighties anthem “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” Snider transformed the song into a thoughtful piano ballad to help raise awareness for Criss Angel’s HELP (Heal Every Life Possible) charity.

 

The magician directed the video in the deserts outside of Las Vegas, with Snider’s performance juxtaposed with images of young people shaving their heads and real footage of hospitalised children battling cancer.

Dee and I have known each other since the 1990s and he was a strong proponent of mine for years. We are both from Long Island, or as we like to think of it, ‘Strong Island,’ and his record publishing company gave me the rights to the song and it is our anthem for gratis,” Angel told the Las Vegas Review Journal . “Dee was unbelievably generous with his time and participation.

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
