Anthony’s Philanthropic Activities
Anthony Petrello’s daughter, Carena, was born with a disability. This made him get involved in the advocacy for various children’s health needs. Carena was born prematurely at 24 weeks being underweight and suffering from periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). The disease is characterized by a lack of proper flow of blood and oxygen to the brain causing adverse neurological problems.
This made Anthony Petrello get interested in researching about children neurological diseases. He was shocked to learn that there was little research on the subject. There is little research on issues related to periventricular leukomalacia. He viewed the lack of resources to do the research as sinful. This has seen him give a lot of donations to children’s hospitals and neurological research centers. To carry out this work, Petrello collaborates with his wife, Cynthia.
Texas Children’s Hospital is found in Houston, Texas. The hospital is a non-profit organization with the mission of giving a healthier future for children through patient care, training, and research. Anthony Petrello has given a lot of money to this hospital assisting it to establish Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. Anthony serves on the hospital’s board of trustees as a member.
Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute carries out research and treats different pediatric neurological disorders. Together with his wife, Anthony Petrello donated US$ 7 million towards the establishment of this institute. The institute was opened in 2010 and has employed many researchers.
Anthony Petrello believes that no more children should suffer from the condition his daughter suffers. He is determined to see enough research being done to address this problem. He supports projects that motivate people by giving them dreams. In his philanthropic journey, he has received a lot of support from many people like the late Dan Duncan.
