His daughter, Carena Petrello, was born with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). As a result childhood, neurological disorders have been of particular interest for the Petrellos. After extensive research, very little information proved available on some childhood neurological disorders. The Petrellos, therefore, saw the need for improvement. They have since taken to donating to organizations that major in these fields. These donations include a seven million dollar sum to Texas Children’s Hospital. With that generous donation, the hospital started a world class Research Institute, the first of its kind in the world for children.
He is so passionate about promoting education. He attended Yale University and in honor of his late Professor and mentor he donated a generous amount to the endowment fund.
