Bob Saget was hailed as a comedic genius, who made a name for himself in shows such as Full House. Saget recently passed away, leaving a huge void that may never be filled. Bob Saget is one of the stars for whom the entire nation is still mourning.
According to TMZ, Bob Saget made it his mission to save a 9-year-old girl named Sophie Anne from a tragedy that Saget himself had to suffer from. This is because Sophie Anne is afflicted with Scleroderma, a group of rare diseases that involve the hardening of the skin and connective tissues.
It is the same disease that took the life of Bob Saget’s sister, Gay, who died in 1994 at age 47. Saget relentlessly worked and became a fundraiser for the Scleroderma Research Foundation. He also reached out to families suffering from the illness to give them comfort and support.
Saget came to know about Sophie Anne around 2 years ago after she was diagnosed. Her parents, Martha and Jeff Seaman stated that they were lost until Bob Saget came into their lives.
Bob sent the girl personalized videos, always with comfort and hope, “We are going to find a cure, sending lots of love.” Being well aware of how it can affect an entire family, Saget offered support to Sophie Anne’s sister with a school paper. The paper she chose to write, “Bob Saget: My Everyday Hero.”
It was also said that Bob Saget was very candid about his life as he even spoke to her on the phone for more than half an hour. The Scleroderma Research Foundation is benefiting from Saget’s help as more than 1,200 people have donated a total of more than $80,000. Saget was truly a wonderful and kind human being and this was just one of many examples of that.
