Success as Tony Petrello puts it does not necessarily have to be about financial gains. The measure of success does not simply translate to earning millions of dollars. There is a success that is intangible. One that person achieves by engaging in activities that change the lives of others. One way to gain this success is through philanthropic work. Anthony Petrello is one of the most generous philanthropists today. Anthony is involved in philanthropic initiatives that are dedicated to raising funds for research work in the field of neurological treatment.
Anthony Petrello has faced medical challenges right at his own home. His daughter who suffered from neurological disorder right from birth. The result was an almost paralyzed girl who could not do anything on herself. Until she was 7 years old, her daughter would not feed on solid foods. Anthony Petrello faced the challenge of finding proper medical care that would see the life of his daughter restored. However, the problem was not access to such medical treatment, the challenge was nonexistence of medical research that would be applied. Anthony was frustrated that no medical research existed for such medical disorder.
Baby Carena, Anthony Petrello’s daughter made him realize that there is a need to focus on research on the neurological medical field. Since he was already rich, Anthony Petrello decided to use some of his money to fund medical research for this medical disorder. He did not only commit his money, but he went the extra step of mobilizing other wealthy people to contribute to this course.
