Anthony Petrello Funds Neurological Disorder Research Center in Texas

Tony Petrello is known for being a generous philanthropist. He recently donated $7 million to a research being conducted by Texas Children’s Hospital. Apart from his personal contribution, he is actively involved in campaigns to mobilize other well-wishers to contribute to this great course. The research is dedicated to realizing medical solutions for children suffering from the neurological medical disorder.

Anthony Petrello knows how it feels like having a sick patient but there is no treatment that is available for that medical disorder. This is the situation that he found himself in with his own daughter, Carena. Carena was born with a medical condition which affected his brains. His brain lacked enough supply of oxygen sufficient for her to lead a normal life. Until she was 7. Carena could not feed on solid food. It took a number of years for her to be able to feed on solid food by herself. Carena has so far been physically handicapped. She cannot do some of the normal physical movements such as walking. For her, it has been extremely difficult for adapt to things other children learn naturally as they grow.

Anthony Petrello is the current CEO of Nabors Industries, the leading oil and natural gas drilling company in the World. This company has business links in almost all corners of the world. They have projects going on in Africa, Middle East, Far East and America. Apart from this business executive role, Tony Petrello is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Texas Children’s Hospital. This is an institution that is funded by the efforts of Anthony Petrello together with his wife.

Having spent a long time looking for a hospital that would help treat their daughter medical condition, Petrello noted that very little was available at the time. He saw this as an opportunity for him to start a campaign that would see the plight of children suffering from neurological disorders addressed.

Texas Children’s Hospital was located right at the nose of their Texas neighborhood. They decided to use this hospital as the research Centre for this disorder. The Neurological Research Institute was born out of Anthony Petrello’s efforts. His efforts would make sure that no other child would undergo the unfortunate life through which Carena and other children have undergone in the past. Petrello has also been able to set up a fundraising platform for the research center through which other interested individuals could contribute to the course.
