Staten Island resident Joe DiMartino has turned his house into a winter wonderland to help children fight cancer.Every year he puts up dozens of Christmas displays at this home during the holiday season.

DiMartino started the project 11 years ago after his wife [Debra Ann DiMartino, 36, who worked at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods] died in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11.

He accepts donations for Staten Island University Hospital’s Children’s Cancer Center. DiMartino has raised over $140,000 for the children’s center, continuing to bring even more smiles to the neighborhood.
