"Man, I'm praying," Cannon said when asked how the 55-year-old actor was doing. "You see, I posted on Instagram. I literally have been saying prayers out loud. Words of affirmation for my big brother." He continued, "I know he's doing so much better because I'm actually about to do something special for him, and doing him a favor."
"I can't really say what it is, but it'll be out there soon," Cannon promised, referring to the 'favor,' sharing that he can't talk about it as of now. "I was reluctant to go all the way there, and even talk about it, but he gave me the blessing, so it's a beautiful thing. He's awake. They say he's alert, so, we love it. That's family right there," he added.
