Over the last few years Tony Petrello has been a very generous man. He recently donated $5 million to a research initiative and plans on adding an additional $2 million in the very near future.
But Petrello is doing much more than just donated his personal money, he is also spearheading several fund raising efforts to help raise even more money for causes that he feels are very important.
Why Is Tony Petrello Being So Generous These Days?
Petrello has a very special reason for giving millions of dollars to research initiatives over the last few years. That reason is his eight year old daughter.
Every morning when Petrellohas the opportunity to watch is daughter Carena eat her breakfast, he is fully aware that he is watching a miracle take place right before his very eyes.
When Carena was born she weighed in at only 20 ounces. She was eventually diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia which led to her having an insufficient amount of blood flow to her brain.
As a result she developed cerebral palsy and has experienced developmental delays since birth.
As Carena continues to grow there will be many new challenges that she will face. Understanding this, Petrello and his wife have decided to devote themselves to finding answers to any issues that Carena may now face.
As the CEO of Nabors Industries Petrello is involved in a lot of very important activities. But the one that matters to him the most is being on the Board of Trustees at the Texas Children’s Hospital.
After finding out Carena would be facing a difficult journey, Petrello and his wife set out to find the best possible pediatric research institution they could find.
They weren’t concerned about cost or location. They just wanted to make sure their daughter had access to the best possible care.
Lucky for them Carenawas able to get all the care she needed at their neighborhood Texas Children’s Hospital. For more info about us: https://www.inc.com/profile/nabors-industries click here.
