Anthony Petrello’s daughter was diagnosed with a neurological disorder very early in her life. Right from birth, Carena had a condition that was threatening her life. The neurological disorder barred her from talking, eating or walking. The only area he has made good progress so far is, eating. However, this was after a long time of training her how to chew food. Until she was seven, she could only feed on liquid foods. Currently, she is being taken through the process of learning how to talk and walk. This condition on Petrello’s daughter has motivated him to make great sacrifices in a bid to see that her daughter’s health condition is resolved.
Anthony Petrello has vowed to spend his money to find a solution for neurological disorders like the one his daughter is suffering from. Anthony has already started donating money to be spent in funding research at the Texas Children’s Hospital’s Neurological Research Centre. Anthony and his wife have decided to mobilize funds that will see an advanced research center put up in Texas to conduct brain research for children.
The situation that Petrello and his wife have found themselves in was precipitated by premature birth of their daughter. Some of her organs had not developed sufficiently such that her body would carry out functions effectively. Carena was born at six months. She was diagnosed with a condition known as periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). Although this is a common disorder in premature babies, it puts them at a risk of developing other complications. Carena is one of those unlucky. As a result of insufficient blood in her brain she developed a condition known as Cerebral Palsy. This is a condition that leads to poor child’s growth as well as affecting motion capabilities of a child.
According to Cynthia, Petrello, their daughter’s condition has humbled everything in their life, despite being successful in life, this condition has made them humble and focused on finding solutions. She says they had gone to the extent of kneeling down daily and seeking for divine intervention so that their daughter can get well.
