Down Lin – A former child star on the TV show “My Three Sons” – is fighting for her life after she underwent brain surgery and fell into a coma… This is according to her former colleagues.
Word of Lyn status first appeared on social media through posts from people like Stanley Livingston And the Tina Cole …who starred in front of her back in the ’60s and ’70s when their sitcom was on the air.
Livingston wrote, “Just found out that my little sister, DAWN LYN (Dodie), is in a coma and fighting for her life. She recently had surgery to remove a brain tumor. Please pray for her for a speedy and complete recovery. I took Dawn out to lunch two months ago.” We had a great time remembering our MTS days. Dawn is one of the kindest humans I’ve ever known. Thoughts and prayers also go to her husband, John, this time. This is devastating news!” Stanley played Dawn’s TV brother, “Chip” Douglas .
Cole also addressed her saying… “My heartfelt prayers go down to my sweet ‘my three sons’ sister, Dawn Lynn (Doody) and her husband John. Don is fighting for her life after undergoing brain surgery.”
She adds, “I’m in touch with John and will keep you updated. Please keep it in your prayers as well.”
The true blood brother of “Lin”, Liv Jarrett To TMZ… “My sister, Don, never wanted anyone to know about the surgery. Since it was leaked on social media, I would really appreciate everyone’s understanding that it was really a difficult time when we lost our parents and a close relative.”
Lev also says, “Please just keep my sister in your thoughts and prayers and respect our family’s privacy. Thank you.”
While Dawn is definitely best known for her role as Dodie Douglas during the last three seasons of ‘MTS’, she has gone on to do more… including voice acting, additional TV roles and even a few movies here and there.
