He added in capital letters that no network or streaming platform would broadcast the ‘1095’ short film because of the topic, adding ‘but it’s real life!’

“I’m asking from my heart to yours if you would like to share this link on your social media platforms – whether you love me or hate me – so we can raise awareness and money to help children who are fighting for their lives right now,” he concluded.

The 13-minute short film opened with clips of Criss appearing as he said, ‘Magic is everywhere. People are not aware of it. Magic is life, and life is magic. We just take it for granted. “

The title ‘1095’ was then displayed when Criss was seen holding Johnny in a hospital bed while monitors beeped in the background.

Criss and Shaunyl became emotional as they talked about the chemotherapy Johnny had undergone for five years.

‘Ten percent of children who undergo treatment do not even manage it, not because of the cancer, but because of the type of medication they have to put in their body. Ten percent lose their lives, Criss said.

“They say children with bald heads are the bravest children of all,” said Shaunyl, who encouraged people to interact with childhood cancer patients.

The short film got its title from the 1,095 chemotherapy sessions needed to treat Johnny’s type B cell ALL leukemia.

After three years, Johnny ended his last day of treatment in December 2019, and Criss held Johnny tight while thanking his supporters, but less than a year later, Johnny’s cancer returned.

Shaunyl and Criss after the remission fought back tears while talking about Johnny’s cancer battle, while clips showed their optimistic son.
