While Stephen and his career may be something that fans across the world may know, there is something about Stephen’s life that some people may not know. The man who plays Oliver Queen, a DC Comic Book Superhero, was raised by a superhero himself; his mother.
Sandra Amell, Stephen’s mother, is known as several things. Mother. Grandma. Wife. To us, she is known as ‘hero’. Sandra, is a cancer fighter and a cancer survivor.
On Friday, May 26th, Stephen Amell hosted a F*CK Cancer event at TAPE London in London, England to raise awareness for the fight against cancer. The event has held a day prior to Heroes and Villains Fan Fest, and was completely sold out. The event was an evening of dancing, socializing, drinks, cupcakes and Stephen himself even gave his own personal ‘F*ck Cancer’ Speech with his mom.
Several other celebrities also attended this event including Stephen’s cousin, Robbie Amell, Italia Ricci (Robbie’s Wife), Killia Marynska and CJ Franco.
