In America, most people believe that oil executives are professionals who are greedy and vain. However, there are few people who are changing this image. Tony Petrello is one of these personalities. Although many individuals in the oil department have a bad image, most of those based in Houston area are respected for their philanthropic activities.
Before Tony was appointed to serve as the chief executive officer of the prestigious Nabor Industries, many people respected him because he has always shown that he has a caring heart. The businessman has increased his philanthropic deeds, especially after his daughter was born prematurely. The oil executive has proved to be a leader who has a generous attitude, especially when it comes to assisting charitable institutions.
For many years now, Tony has been offering emotional and financial support to scientific researchers who are working in the medical community. Together with his beautiful wife Cynthia, Tony Petrello has given over five million dollars and at the same time pledged two million to bring a new research on board. In a recent interview, the businessman says that he is driven to give the donations whenever he watches his daughter take her breakfast. Carena, unlike her eight-year-old age mates, began chewing her food last year due to her medical condition.
Carena, Tony and Cynthia’s daughter has a neurological condition that has affected the ability of the brain to walk, speak and eat. The beautiful young girl has always had to repeat chewing more than one million times so that her brain can learn and recognize the pattern. Carena is a great motivation to her dad to give more donations to scientific research, hoping that one day, medical doctors will find a cure for the condition. Although the young gal is suffering due to the condition, she motivates her parents to have a positive attitude and also a sincere kindness to people with similar circumstances.
Tony’s daughter was born prematurely. This led to the neurological disorder that doctors say that it is incurable. According to medical professionals, Carena’s condition is prevalent, especially to the babies who are born prematurely. The condition results when enough oxygen does not reach the brain. Because Carena was too tiny when she was born, her little body could not circulate the blood that was needed into the brain, and it resulted in the serious condition. With the help of her parents, the beautiful girl is learning to live a good life just like everyone else.
