Anthony Petrello contribution in the healthcare philanthropic initiatives has been great. He has spent millions of dollars in various initiatives that are meant to alleviate the suffering of many children from the United States and all over the world who are suffering from neurological disorder related problems. The neurological disorders in children have a great adverse impact on the lives of these young ones. When children suffer from neurological diseases, then proceed to miss the right medication, then their lives are as good as miserable. This disorders usually come with the problem of a child being unable to control the various body functions especially the body motions. Such children will have the problem of walking as well as talking.
For Anthony Petrello, he has witnessed this problem first hand in his family. His daughter has been suffering from this condition that has made her unable to do basic body functions such as chewing, talking and walking. Until she was seven, he could not feed on solid foods. It has taken many years of training for her to finally learn the art of chewing solid food. Carena suffers from a condition knows as Cerebral Palsy. This is a problem that is caused by improper brain functioning. When the brain receives less oxygen, it will likely affect the whole body since it is the nerve center of all the whole body.
The cerebral Palsy disease has made the life for the little Carena almost unbearable. She has been unable to do basic body functions that are necessary for a normal living of a child. The problem that she has been facing has pushed her parents to look for treatment in many hospitals in the world, but they have not been successful. Almost every hospital that Anthony Petrello have visited lacks a unit that can handle neurological disorders like the one his daughter is suffering from.
Anthony Petrello being a person who does not believe in impossibilities have made it a responsibility in life to tackle this challenge that has plagued his daughters’ life. Anthony Petrello decided to use his wealth to see that the world does not continue to suffer from lack of medical research in such an important part of human life. He is saddened that his daughter and many other little children who are hopeless continues to suffer due to a problem that can be addressed if resources are channeled towards research in the medical field.
