Larry The Cable Guy
Comedian Larry the Cable Guy and his wife, Cara, formed the The Git-R-Done Foundation in 2009, and currently focus on the needs of children’s charities. One donation, to The Arnold Palmer Hospital, came from an extremely personal experience with their son, Wyatt. He was born with hip dysplasia, a common condition, but Larry and his wife quickly found out how little universal information, care, prevention and awareness was available on hip dysplasia. You can imagine how difficult it is to hear that “it happens sometimes” and that it “_might_ correct itself”. After consulting numerous doctors, they were directed to Dr. Charles Price, an expert in the field. Wyatt’s hip was corrected, and he now runs around and plays just like any other kid! The donation to The Arnold Palmer Hospital established The International Hip Dysplasia Institute to bring together the top minds on hip dysplasia and the Wyatt Whitney Hip and Musculoskeletal Center to have a centralized location for research, care and prevention of hip dysplasia. The IHDI continues to work on the awareness of proper swaddling and creating hip healthty products that can help prevent and cure hip dysplasia. The IHDI also uses social networks such as Facebook to act as a source not only for information, but also as a place for families to meet and discuss the emotional ups and downs of hip dysplasia. Larry also hosts The Git-R-Done Celebrity Golf Classic, with The Arnold Palmer Hospital and IHDI the benefactors of the event.
