Anthony Petrello- Donor to the Neurological research Center in Texas

Anthony Petrello is making airwaves in his the United States and the world at large for his contribution in helping children who are suffering from neurological diseases. Anthony Petrello has been the factor behind setting up of the largest Neurological research center in the world. The center which is based in Texas has been built through the contribution of Anthony Petrello. The neurological research center is based at Texas Children’s Hospital. It was started by Anthony Petrello and others after they saw it fit to have a facility that would address the issues that children suffering from neurological diseases undergo through. Anthony Petrello has been the biggest donor to this facility contributing $5 million single-handedly while at the same time promising to adds another 2 million dollars if the center showed signs of improvement.

Anthony Petrello started this neurological research center after an experience that he underwent through while trying to find medication for his daughter who suffers from a neurological disorder. Baby Carena was born prematurely. She would later develop a neurological disorder where his heart would not be able to pump enough blood to her brain. This created a scenario where her brain was getting less oxygen than it should. What resulted is that she developed a problem known as cerebral Palsy. This a problem which has affected her ability to do any task that requires motion. For instance, she is not able to talk, walk or chew food.

This neurological problem has sent Anthony Petrello to almost every known big hospital in the world. He searched for the best medical care for her daughter, but there was none. No hospital had the facilities or a department that dealt with neurological disorders like the one his daughter was battling with. After being around the world looking for the best medical care, he realized that there was very limited information out there on how neurological disorders should be treated. As a known problems solver, he took it upon himself to start a center that would research theism medical field. The neurological Research center found at the Texas Children hospital has been a result of his initiative to facilitate research in this medical field.

Anthony Petrello is a top business leader who works for the biggest drilling firm in the world. As a business leader, he has many connections with influential people. He had been working closely with the children’s hospital to raise funds for this initiative that he hopes will change the lives of children in the world today.
