When Anthony Petrello and his wife Cynthia welcomed their first daughter into the world, they never thought that it would change their life in the manner that it did. Their daughter called Carena was born with a neurological medical disorder. The problem started when she was born prematurely. Carena was born at 24 weeks and was weighing less than the normal weight required for healthy growth. Baby Carena developed complications where her brain was receiving less oxygen than it should. This meant that her brain would not function as it should be. The brain being the nerve center of the body was affected meaning that he could not function in the normal way. The problem worsened when baby Carena developed another complication known as cerebral palsy. This is a problem that meant that she could not do tasks that required motion. For instance, she could not chew food, walk, talk or even walk.
Anthony Petrello has transversed all over the world looking for medical care that would solve the problem that her daughter was suffering from. He has been to every big hospital in the world hoping that he could find the best medical care that would solve the medical problem that his daughter was suffering from. This was not to be the case as no single hospital in the world had the requisite information regarding the neurological disorder that his daughter was suffering from. Frustrated that his daughter would not get well, Anthony Petrello decided to liaise with the Texas Children Hospital. On the possibility of starting a medical center that would research neurological disorders. In his travel around the world. Anthony Petrello noticed that what was lacking is adequate research geared towards solving neurological problems in children.
Anthony Petrello was determined to see that this culture did not continue and that there was a provision of medical care that would solve this problem that was faced by many children in the world. The neurological research center in Texas would recruit the best doctors and surgeons from all the world who would research on the possible solutions to the neurological problems.
To kick start the center, Anthony Petrello contributed $5 million that would be used to set up the facility. He has also promised to add more funds to the center in future so that the research work does not halt.
