Larry the Cable Guy: Dysplasia Hero.

A friend told me about this article today and I couldn't believe it. Looking past the fact that Larry the Cable Guy actually has made more than $5,000,000, he and his wife Cara have a 4-year-old son who was born with DDH. Cara was as shocked as I was to the lack of resources out there for such a common abnormality. Their goal with starting up the International Hip Dysplasia Institute at Arnold Palmer Medical Center is to exchange knowledge and educate parents. The long-term goal is to cure DDH without surgery.
I wish they were around 6 months ago, when L.E. was born and diagnosed. There were very little resources available and I'm happy that the IHDI has such a thorough website.  And I couldn't be more grateful for the Cable Guy family for giving back so much. I might just have to go rent his health inspector movie...
