He pledged to donate $5 million to the Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital. He will donate another 2 million dollars in the near future.

Anthony Petrello has a unique perspective on the needs of ill children. His daughter was born prematurely and suffered from a lack of oxygen flow to the brain. This caused her to develop cerebral palsy. She is unable to perform simple tasks. Anthony and his wife have worked hard their entire lives to make sure that their daughter gets the best opportunities and has the best chance to get better and succeed. This caused Anthony to have the perspective that he needs to help out other children as well. That is why he donated so much money to the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Anthony Petrello hopes that through his donations and the donations of others like him, the Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital will be able to come up with a cure for cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions. He hopes that his daughter and children like her will be able to be cured. Anthony knows that the team at Texas Children’s Hospital has been doing their best to help out his daughter and other children, and he is full of praise for them. Anthony has never given up hope on a cure for his daughter.
