John Stamos took to twitter Monday to tell the world he had a new friend. And that they were planning a trip to Disneyland.

The young girl in the picture is Kaitlyn Dobrow, a 19-year-old who lost all of her limbs due to a severe bacterial infection.
Dobrow had an especially deadly strain of meningococcemia, a fast-moving bacterial infection of the bloodstream that is linked to meningitis. The infection cut off circulation to her limbs, leaving doctors with little choice but to amputate her arms at the shoulders and legs at the knees.
While it is unclear how Stamos and Dobrow connected, it is clear that the two of them share a special connection. So special, in fact, that he is planning their trip to Disneyland.
He posted another photo of the two of them on Tuesday, with the caption reading "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."
