Today, Petrello’s daughter Carena is 8 years old and struggled through her periventrical leukomalacia (PVL) which means there was a lack of oxygen or blood flow to her brain. Because of this issue, she had developed cerebral palsy, impaired motor skills, and she just could not do everyday simple tasks. Petrello and his Wife did not fail to help their daughter. Since they did not give up on her, she is now chewing and learning to talk and walk. Her parents want to fight this dysfunction and they are working alongside the Texas Children’s Hospital for the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. They have donated a total of $7 million dollars as a token of their love. He didn’t make the top best paid bosses of 2014 because he took other steps which gave some money back to shareholders yet he is still the best paid CEO in 2013. Overall, Anthony Petrello has earned his name in the business because he never gives up.
