Stephen Amell may not be a real-life superhero, but he's certainly heroic, even without powers. The 35-year-old star of CW's "Arrow" announced the start of his 3rd annual F*ck Cancer campaign this morning on various social media platforms. The candidly named charity event brings the sale of tops and hoodies in multiple styles and sizes in support of education on cancer.

"Hello friends," a note from Amell reads on the sales page, "It's time once again to represent a cause that has turned into something bigger than any of us could have imagined. Get a shirt! Get a hoodie! Finally... F*ck Cancer."
In addition to posting the campaign's official page, Amell took to one of his favorite means of communication with his devoted fanbase -- Facebook Live. After shooting long past midnight on "Arrow", Amell posted a video announcing the Campaign's return.
100% of the proceeds for the shirt sales go to F*ck Cancer -- a nonprofit started by Huntington Beach native Brandon McGuinness, who lost his battle to Hodgekin's Lymphoma in 2007. He was 27 years old. F*ck Cancer helps in education on early cancer detection and helping victims and their families. "Together, we FIGHT", their website proudly touts.
Starring Stephen Amell as the titular Green Archer, “Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, John Barrowman, Willa Holland and more.
