    Stamos also included a link to an article on New York Daily News that shares the story of Dobrow's battle with the deadly bacterial infection meningococcemia. The young California resident was first admitted to UC Irvine Medical Center in February, and has since undergone 12 surgeries -- including amputations and skin grafts -- to fight the infection.

    "Initially, she cried when she learned about her limbs," her father, Don Dobrow, said. "But the following day she said this is something I'll find a way to make work, and joked, 'Who needs a left arm anyway?'"
