Tony and his wife Cynthia Petrello demonstrated their commitment to philanthropy during the launch of the Neurological Research Institute (NRI) at Texas Children’s Hospital. The couple committed $7 million towards the initiative aimed at researching and supporting children with life-threatening neurological disorders.
Tony and Cynthia overwhelming commitment to different initiatives was inspired by a firsthand experience as parents of a child suffering from a neurological disease. Carena, who is 8-years-old, was born prematurely with periventricular leukemia, a common neurological disease. The condition, which is caused by lack of oxygen to the brain, results in developmental delays in infants. Tony and Cynthia have visited several hospitals seeking to find answers to their daughter’s condition. Fortunately, Carena is now learning to eat, walk and even talk. However, Tony is determined to find an effective solution to his daughter’s condition and other kids suffering from the same disease. With the launch of NRI, Tony believes that the Texas Children’s Hospital will be in a better position to offer improved care to children with neurological diseases.
