My Story

Kids Get Cancer too! Vito was diagnosed at 11 months with an aggressive form of brain cancer known as medulloblastoma. While the disease was ravaging his brain and body, Vito kept those around him feeling better with his bright smile, happy demeanor and his collection of superhero capes! The brave little boy whose cancer fight captured the hearts of people across the world is finally at peace, passing away quietly the night before Thanksgiving at the age of two.
