Talk show host Larry King is set to help 300 people by covering the cost of their medical care through the Larry King Cardiac Foundation.

For each of the next three years, King’s foundation will provide medical devices and pay operating room costs for about 100 uninsured patients at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. The estimated cost of the service is $750,000 a year.

In 1987, King underwent quintuple bypass heart surgery. During his recovery he decided to help people who were not able to afford similar life-saving treatments. The foundation was started by King and his family in 1988.
