Even though Tony Petrello has his hands full with his business obligations, he’s also dedicated to being involved with the research needed to help his daughter, Carena. She was born prematurely at 24 weeks and weighed a little more than a pound at birth. When she was an infant, she was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), a neurological disease that was caused by a lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain, a common occurrence in premature babies. That resulted in several developmental delay issues for Carena. The good news is that she’s making progress all the time, and she’s now able to chew solid food. Tony and his wife, Cynthia Petrello, are committed to helping to fund the translational research that will help Carena and children like her to be able to reach their full potential.
