Dawn Lyn, ‘My Three Sons’ star, left in coma and fighting for her life with her husband by her side

She needs our prayers.


Former child star Dawn Lyn, best known for the TV show My Three Sons, has been fighting for her life after she ended up in coma following a brain surgery, her former co-stars reported.

It was Stanley Livingson and Tina Cole who first wrote of Dawn’s health condition on the social media.

Once the news spread, Lyn’s brother, Leif Garrett, confirmed the rumors to be true.

“My sister, Dawn, never wanted anyone to know about the surgery,” he wrote. “Since it has been leaked on social media, I would really appreciate everyone’s understanding that it has already been a difficult time having lost both of our parents and a cousin recently. Please just keep my sister in your thoughts and prayers and respect our family’s privacy. Thank you.”

A spokesperson of Garrett said the family will not further comment on Dawn’s condition.

Chip Douglas, who played Lyn’s brother on the show, was among the people who spoke of Dawn’s health.

“Just found out my little TV Sis’, DAWN LYN (Dodie), is in a COMA and fighting for her life,” he wrote some days ago. “She had surgery recently to remove a brain tumor. Please pray for her to have a swift and full recovery. I took Dawn out to lunch a couple of months ago. We had a great time reminiscing about our MTS days. Dawn is one of the nicest human beings I have ever known. Thoughts and prayers also go out to her husband, John, at this time. This is devastating news!”

Later, he posted an update, writing, “She remains unconscious battling meningitis. Her vitals and brain waves are good. The doctors and nurses are aggressively fighting the bacterial infection. They’re optimistic.”

As My Three Sons turned into a huge hit back in the day, Dawn gained popularity when she came to the forefront in the final three seasons.

Once the show was over, Dawn continued working as an actress for many years.

As her condition remains critical, her family and her husband of 16 years, William John Reese, are by her side hoping and praying for a positive outcome.

Our prayers go to Dawn and her family. We wish she recovers as soon as possible.
