The drive to finance this medical facility in his Texas neighborhood was occasioned by a situation in which he advertently found himself in. When together with his wife they welcomed their daughter, they never hoped that would be the change that would occasion their lives. Their daughter was born prematurely. While still in that state he developed a brain problem that affected Anthony’s neurological system. His brain would not receive sufficient blood or oxygen for it to perform the normal functions of the body. As a result, baby Carena developed a medical condition known as Cerebral Palsy. She was not in a position to feed on his own, walk or even talk. His life has been very painful to his parents. They have watched their daughter undergo an unfortunate upbringing unlike that of many other children.
