Tony is Never Giving Up in Benevolence
Anthony and Cynthia Petrello’s eight-year-old daughter was born at 24 weeks with a weight of only 20 ounces. Young Carena developed a condition called Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). The white matter of the brain decays or dies due to lack of oxygen or blood flow, leaving a space that causes fluid accretion. The child has to fight every day to reach normal developmental milestones. Tony and his wife are overjoyed when Carena is able to do something as mundane as chewing her food.
The condition made the couple try all sorts of avenues to find solution that could help their daughter do more things like walk or utter a word. This journey led them to the Texas Children’s Hospital, where they have donated more than $5 Million and developed a personal commitment to fundraising activities. These efforts will go towards brain research for children. Anthony Petrello hopes this research will lead to good news for Carena and children with PVL everywhere in the world for more info: http://executives.findthecompany.com/l/18290/Anthony-G-Petrello click here.
