The Propeller towards Philanthropy
Anthony has not only proved to be excellent in office work but also work outside the office. He is a renowned philanthropist. Petrello is prominently bestowed in medical issues and offers monetary support to the medical community. Bearing a disabled daughter triggered Petrello to advocate for children’s health matters. His daughter was diagnosed with PVL, a common disease in babies born prematurely. The disease is caused by the failure of oxygen and blood to flow into the blood, thus causing neurological issues.
After receiving the news about his daughter at birth, Anthony accepted the fact that his daughter was sick and decided to study about neurological diseases. He has offered close to $7 million to a Texas-based children’s neurological research center. He provides financial support and serves on the board of trustees at the hospital.
