Tony Petrello and his wife are large donors to the Texas Children’s Hospital. Eight years ago, their daughter was born at 24 weeks. She weighed just 20 ounces at birth. There were some complications and it was determined that their baby had cerebral palsy. Their daughter did not progress and develop like other children, and she spends a good amount of time at the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Tony Petrello and his wife Cynthia are determined to find a cure and they donate their time and their money to that cause. The Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute is doing great things, and the Petrello’s want to make sure those good things continue for a long time to come.
