CEO Anthony Petrello supporting medical research

Tony Petrello is one of the greatest philanthropists of our time. He has accomplished a lot for the United States. He is not only a problems solver in the field of business but also a problems solver for societal problems. Tony Petrello is the biggest donor towards the establishment of the first neurological hospital in the world. He has worked closely with the Texas Children Hospital to set up the first research center that will deal with problems of neurological disorders in children. Tony Petrello has been a leading figure in the country in advocating for the health of children. The neurological center was set up after he went all over the world looking for a treatment to a medical disorder that her daughter was suffering from.

Anthony Petrello did not manage to secure treatment for his daughter. He had to come up with a way that he could ensure that his daughter benefited from good medical care. This is when he came up with the plan of assisting the neurological center in Texas Children Hospital to conduct research in the medical field. Petrello being a problem solver for the business and other matters in life could not be contended that there was no solution for the medical problem that his daughter was suffering from. He decided that he must do something that will change the lives of many other children who suffer from the same medical problems.

Antony Petrello started journey when he received his firstborn daughter. She was born prematurely and was suffering from a brain problem. Her brain could not receive sufficient oxygen. This led to problems for baby Carena. Her body could not function in the normal way. The brain being the nerve center for the whole body affected her ability to have any motion in her body. She could not carry out some functions such eating, walking or even talking. She was paralyzed. This situation gave Tony Petrello the motivation to support research in medical fields that are related to his daughter’s health. The only help he could get could only come by sponsoring new research in this medical field. This is how he found himself in Texas Children hospital supporting the health of these young ones. As a victim of the disease, he hopes that a solution will be found to cure her daughter who has been suffering all her life.

Anthony Petrello has another foundation in the Yale University where he supports mathematicians who have excelled very well at the university. This is a foundation he started to commemorate the death of his friend at the University Professor Serge Lange.
