Nabors Industries’ president and CEO Mr. Tony Petrello and his wife Cynthia had played a key role in the development of a new research building for the Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. The Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute is one of the fewest research facilities in the world to completely focus on treating brain diseases and neurological disorders for infants and children. Mr. Tony Petrello and his wife had birthed a beloved daughter who was born with a debilitating brain disease called periventricular leukomalacia. The condition later caused their child to develop cerebral palsy. The Petrello’s daughter gradually had to learn how to execute basic functions that other children had already developed and naturally learned on their own.
The new Houston research facility will commit towards working with the parents to help build their child’s development and provide them with education as well as the latest developments on the neurological disorder. Tony Petrello actively serves as a member of the Texas Children’s Hospital Board of Trustees. He and his wife had donated over $5 million to help fund the children hospital’s newest addition. The Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute’s ultimate goal is to find a cure to these life-threatening neurological disorders and the Tony Petrello’s contributions have helped tremendously. They are expected to donate $2 million more to the research facility in the year ahead.
Mr. Tony Petrello has continuously given back to the community of Houston, TX, since joining Nabors Industries, one of the largest oil, geothermal and natural gas land drilling and exploration companies in the world. Through his company, Mr. Petrello was able to launch the Nabors Charitable Foundation. The foundation has already given well over $3 million to help provide its employees and their children with educational scholarships. In 2017, the company also created a fund to help with disaster relief efforts and support all victims affected by Hurricane Harvey in the Houston and surrounding Gulf Coast areas.
