John Stamos to Take Young Amputee on Disneyland Date
John Stamos is trying to bring a little joy to a 19-year-old going through an extremely tough time.
The former "Full House" star posted a picture of himself bedside on Tuesday at the California hospital room of Kaitlyn Dobrow, with the caption, "I'm ONLY doing this cause they asked. I said no press. but this story is a must read- plus me and katie have a date to Disneyland."
Dubrow had a bout with a deadly bacterial infection, which forced doctors to amputate her limbs to save her life.
In another pic posted on Twitter, Stamos says, "we're planning our trip to @disneyland !!!" Dobrow is wearing a Minnie Mouse shirt, still smiling through it all.
The teenager was admitted to a California hospital in February and since then, the number of her surgeries is in the double digits.
Kathi Dobrow, Kaitlyn's mother, told her daughter's story on a fundraising site that raised more than $77,000 to help the family accommodate her needs with rehab, and a possible new car or new home that's better suited for her after all the surgeries.
"Kaitlynn has had an amazingly positive and courageous attitude throughout this illness and is determined to have a happy, fulfilling life, believing that God has an awesome plan for her future. She is my hero," her mother said.
To follow Dobrow's recovery, a Facebook page "Caring for Katie" has been set up.
