Anthony Petrello is a big contributor to initiatives that are about giving back to the society. He is one of the people, who have managed to set a precedence of the community helping in issues that are yet to be resolved in the society. Anthony Petrello is known for being a generous philanthropist who has made huge contributions to various medical facilities in the state of Texas.
Anthony Petrello has made sure that his community does not continue to suffer from issues that he can help resolve. When he went around the world looking for a medical facility that would cure his daughter and could find none. He came back to his home state and started an initiative that would see a neurological research center set at the Texas Children Hospital. The intention is to have top surgeons and doctors come into the research center and conduct research that will resolve the myriad problems that are seen in children suffering from neurological disorders. To show his commitment towards this initiative, he has contributed 5 million dollars and a promise of adding another two million dollars to the initiative.
This initiative is personal to the CEO of Nabors Industries since his daughter is one of the victims of neurological disorders. Baby Carena suffers from a condition known as Cerebral Palsy. His body is not able to pump enough oxygen into the brain, and therefore his nervous system has not been fully functional. She is unable to perform, tasks that need motion such as talking, walking and chewing. The medical condition of Carena has made Anthony Petrello rethink his perspective on life. He has noticed that although he is a brilliant manager and a renowned problem solver, the medical problem, of his daughter has affected his life so much. For once he feels hopeless that he cannot solve the problem. Since he has no expertise in medical treatment, he has resorted to looking for other solutions that may apply in this case.
The only option that he has been left with is to sponsor medical research in the fields of neurological study. He made sure that he uses his resources to finance the operations of the research center in Texas to see if there could be a solution for his daughter and other children suffering from a similar condition.
Anthony Petrello and his wife have also made a habit, attending conferences that talk about neurological medical disorders. They give hope to other parents of children like Carena and encouraging them to contribute to the ongoing research work in Texas Children Hospital.
