Tony Petrello is married to Cynthia. Both of them are passionate about philanthropy. In fact, they are some of the most generous people in Texas, facilitating various community projects. One area where they have concentrated on since they started philanthropy is in the medical care department. They have been generous to medical need of children after their daughter was born with a neurological disorder. They have been looking for a facility that can facilitate treatment of neurological disorders in children. When their daughter Carena was born with such a condition, they did not know where to turn to.
Every hospital they visited, they found that there was no facility dedicated to the treatment of such conditions. In the end, Petrello and his wife, Cynthia Petrello decided to start something that would change the industry. They decided to come up with a facility that would start research work and offer treatment and care to the children suffering from neurological disorders. Luckily for them, just in the neighborhoods of Texas, there was already a facility that had been started known as Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute, which was located at the Texas Children’s Hospital. This is a facility that was already trying to come up with a solution for the challenges of neurological disorder.
