Tony Petrello is a very enthusiastic supporter for the awareness of children who suffer from neurological disorders, and he is calling for increased development of clinical programs to address the matter. Petrello’s 8-year old daughter, Carena, was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia at premature birth(PVL). The disease is common in infants. It is caused by very strict circulation of blood and oxygen in the brain. The disease has caused Carena to develop cerebral palsy, a neurological condition that constitutes chronic impairment in motor skills that may co-exist with other delays in development. Anthony and his wife have followed up on many research facilities across the U.S., including major institutions like UCLA, Harvard, and Johns Hopkins. Their massive search for answers regarding their daughter lead them to conclude that neurological research on needs to be extended on a broad scale. According to Anthony, there are few institutions that implement neurological research for the adult brain but pediatric research is rare to stumble upon. He argues that the need for clinical programs for kids are not being met, when there are great opportunities that can be taken advantage of. Anthony and Cynthia turned their attention to Texas Children’s Hospital, and their daughter was entitled to high quality treatment. The story of their daughter is an inspiration to parents of children who suffer from neurological diseases. Her story ensures parents that all children like herself will miraculously reach and master their full potential.
