Fundraiser Held for Teen Who Lost Limbs to Meningitis

Kaitlyn Dobrow expected her friends and family would come, but actor John Stamos was a long shot.  And yet, he was there.

A fundraiser was held on Sunday at Huntington Beach High School to help Kaitlyn with medical and living expenses.


Kaitlyn Dobrow lost her limbs after she contracted meningitis.

The teenager lost all four of her limbs to a debilitating case of meningitis.  The disease also left her with scars on her face and all over her body.

Stamos was one of many people who came to the fundraiser at the school’s auditorium.  At one point, he pulled out a guitar and sang for the attendees.  The guitar was signed by Stamos and later auctioned off.
