The actor opens up about how his father was diagnosed with color cancer when Marini was only 18 years old, and unfortunately, his father passed away seven months after. "That was the first time I understood was cancer was, and how bad it was," Marini said in that video. "Every single person in this world is touched by cancer. It is by far the most terrible disease there is in this world," he added, prior to encouraging people to sign up.
