Inspired by their adversity, Anthony and his wife are huge supporters of Texas Children’s Hospital, where they pledged 7 million to get them to research on PLV and other childhood disorders. He and his company also supports National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Dare to Care, Stollery Children’s Hospital, Komen Race for Cure, and United Way
Tony has a daughter with his wife Cynthia, who was born with a congenital disability called Periventricular Leukomalacia at 24 weeks caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. Their daughter Carena suffered neurological damage which caused cerebral palsy that severely impairs motor skills and delays normal development. Anthony realized that there was little research on infants born with PVLs a condition that would pose enormous challenges for their daughter. As such, they approached Texas Children’s Hospital to conduct research on the cause of the disorder, and he made huge donations to get the program running. In 2010, Dan and Jan Duncan Neurological Research Institute opened its doors to the study the condition. He hopes the research will provide breakthrough relief to parents undergoing the same ordeal as them so that children born with PLV can have a bright future. This humbling experience has made them appreciate the little milestones their daughter achieves and each day is a miracle for them.
