Criss Angel’s world was rocked when he learned that his and *Shaunyl Benson *’s son, Johnny, was diagnosed with cancer in October — but today, the magician has a positive outlook when it comes to the two-year-old's future.
"When you have a child that has this horrendous disease, you can relate to the families from a different perspective. So Shaunyl and I made the decision to use this in a positive way. You know, this is so much bigger than me,” he told E! News.
Criss announced in June that Johnny, who was battling leukemia, is now in remission.
"I think Johnny is a very special boy and I think he's going to be more successful than I ever was," he added. "I just want him to be happy and I want him to live a long happy fruitful life."
