raised towards $32,000 goal




Days Left


Joe Restaino loved his family, his friends, cinema and life. He lived for four years and eight days after being diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer at the age of 16. Joe passed away in 2010 at the age of 20 and left a legacy: a to-do list asking his family to aid in research so that other young people would someday benefit from better treatments of pediatric cancers.

We are setting a goal of $32,000 in honor of what would have been Joe’s 32nd birthday at the end of this year. You can help us reach our fundraising goal and be a part of the exciting research at work at Levine Children’s.
