Caleb’s Hip Dysplasia Team

When Caleb was 6 months old he had an open reduction on his left hip. After surgery he was in a spica cast for 3 months and then a rhino brace until he was 3. We learned a lot about hip dysplasia through Miles4Hips, and we even wrote an article on how to prepare yourself and your child for hip dysplasia.

We like when we can pass information and experiences on to others and help as many as possible.

In 2023, we noticed that Caleb’s hip was bothering him a lot when he was active. Once he was checked out by his doctor, we learned that he will need another surgery to correct his hip. This was a reminder to us that this is an ongoing battle that Caleb has to deal with, and that we all be one that we all have to go through in one way or another.

My husband and I started running to be more active, and we thought, ‘Why not run for Caleb?’

We have decided to participate in several events and make t-shirts to help raise awareness about hip dysplasia. In doing this, we hope that more and more people will learn about hip dysplasia, spread the word, and donate to the Internation Hip Dysplasia Institute to help generate more knowledge and research about hip dysplasia. The more information and awareness out there the better!

You can donate to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI)on their website and, if you purchase a t-shirt, percentage of your order will also be donated to the Institute.

We can’t wait to update you on our running journey for Caleb!
