Texas Children’s Hospital has launched a first-of-its kind research center, Neurological Research Institute, in support of the children diagnosed with neurological disorders. Tony Petrello and his wife Cynthia emerged as the top donors with a contribution of $7 million. Tony Petrello is the president and chief operating officer of Nabors Industries. In addition, he is a member of the Texas Children’s Hospital. The couple’s overwhelming philanthropy was inspired by adversity. They are parents to an 8-year old kid who has neurological disorder. The disease left her with chronically impaired motor skills and other delays in development issues. Over the years, they have struggled to find cure for their daughter, who is now learning to walk, talk and eat. The Neurological Research Institute is a ray of hope for the future of their beloved daughter. The institution will specialize on extensive brain research for children. Tony looks forward to seeing Carena and other children like her get the chance to reach their full potential in life.
