Moving to his family life, you get to see the extraordinary characteristic in him. Tony Petrello and wife, Cynthia were blessed with a girl by the name Carena. Carena has been suffering from cerebral palsy since birth and was unable to eat solid food till the age of seven. The condition which makes it difficult for Carena to walk and talk like other kids her age was as a result of lack of adequate oxygen and blood flow to the brain during her infancy. Tony views that if enough research is done, people like Carena can get the help they need to lead a normal life. For this reason, he focuses on funding such projects that aim at helping the less fortunate. Tony continues to write his success story every day.
