Sick daughter prompts Anthony Petrello to be an active philanthropist.
Anthony Petrello is a family man, he is married to Cynthia and they have a daughter. The life of Anthony Petrello and his family has inspired him to get involved in philanthropic work in a big way. Their daughter was born with an illness that rendered her handicapped for the first 7 years. Their daughter could not eat solid food until he was 7. At birth, she weighed just one and a quarter pounds. Her state of health motivated the duo to engage in philanthropic activities that would see them sponsor research towards neurological diseases treatment that affects children.
The condition from which their daughters suffers has made Petrello appreciate the small things in life, that children do by themselves. The fact that their daughter can accomplish small achievements by herself make her parents very proud. The challenge that he has faced with her daughter has made him develop a positive attitude towards helping children from poor backgrounds who cannot afford to have a proper medication for children. The hardships she has been through with her daughter has been a miracle to thousands of children living with neurological diseases in the United States.
Anthony Petrello is the chief executive officer of Nabors Industries, a firm that deals with the drilling of oil and natural gas. It has its headquarters in Texas, U.S. The mining sector is a wealthy industry and many people who work in the sector get to enjoy huge wages. Anthony Petrello being a holder of a prime position in the mining industry, therefore, gets to enjoy a huge income. In fact, in 2014, he was the best-paid CEO in the United States. A considerably huge chunk of his income, however, goes into philanthropic works.
Anthony Petrello and his wife Cynthia had achieved almost anything a human being would wish for in this world. This was the case until they got their daughter. Life was never the same again. He struggled to find treatment for his sick daughter. Not even the wealth he owned could help him get her daughter the treatment she needed. As the case was then, there was inadequate research which had been done in the field of neurology.
Anthony Petrello decided from then that he would lead a campaign geared towards having more research in this field of medical treatment. He decided to convert the challenge he had faced with his daughter into an opportunity that would help thousands of other children facing the same health disorder.
