Kaitlyn Dobrow, 18, lost her arms and legs to meningococcemia, a fast-moving bacterial infection that cut off circulation to her extremities. The courageous teen has weathered numerous surgeries and months of painful wound care since she was first hospitalized in February.
Kaitlyn’s best friend says actor John Stamos “made our day” during a recent visit when they planned a trip to Disneyland. Kaitlyn’s smile says even more than the tweets:
Kaitlyn’s father says the family may have to move or remodel their home to accommodate his daughter’s needs. An online fundraiser has brought in more than $77,000. You can read more about Katilyn and her upbeat attitude at the Daily News article linked by Stamos.
Stamos’ former “Full House” co-star loves her some Uncle Jesse. His dedication to young people with illnesses is just one of many reasons.
