Who is Audrey Nethery?

She’s a YouTuberprobably best known for appearing in her father’s videos and for trying to raise awareness about Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a very rare bone marrow disease that she suffers from.

Early life, parents and education

Audrey is raised in Kentucky as an only child by her father, who works two jobs to support the family, and her mother, Julie, who is a housewife.

Audrey still attends primary school and is interested in numerous things such as playing video games, traveling and sports, but she cannot do many sports and should not get tired as it could worsen her condition. She became interested in dancing at a very young age – after her mother took her to her first Zumba class, she discovered that her daughter was very passionate about it – Audrey has been taking Zumba classes for five years now. She spends most of her free time reading books – her favorites are romance books like those written by Nicholas Sparks, including “Dear John” and “The Notebook”.

Although she has not yet enrolled in a high school, Audrey has already made plans for the future and hopes to enroll in a university after she enrolls.

Her father’s YouTube channel

Audrey’s father launched the YouTube channel “Audrey Nethery” on August 20, 2013, and part of the bio section reads, “This channel is dedicated to my daughter Audrey who has a rare bone marrow syndrome called Diamond Blackfan Anemia (www.dbafoundation.org ). People with DBA don’t make enough red blood cells to survive.’

There are currently over a million people subscribed to the channel and it counts over 327 million views of all videos uploaded on it. Audrey dances and sings in most of the videos, and two of the most popular on the channel are “Audrey at the Orlando International Zumba Convention!!” which has been viewed more than 85 million times as of August 19, 2015, and “Life’s Beautiful- Audrey Nethery Ft. Steven Battey and Kayla C.” which has been viewed over 58 million times as of December 13, 2016 – because of how mean people can be in the comments, Audrey’s dad has disabled commenting.

The channel was created not only to show people what the disease looks like, but also to raise money for critical research and perhaps even finding the cure for this disease. Audrey also has an Instagram account operated by her father which today has almost 550,000 followers. The account is also used to raise awareness about the disease.

Disease

Diamond Blackfan anemia is a congenital erythroid aplasia, which can be noticed early in life. It causes the person to not have enough red blood cells, and not treating it would lead to certain death.

In about a quarter of cases, the disease is inherited from parents and grandparents, while in about half of cases, the disease is related to abnormal ribosomal protein genes.

To diagnose the disease, a blood test is performed as well as a bone marrow biopsy – the disease is usually diagnosed when the person is no more than two years old.

There are multiple ways to treat Diamond Blackfan anemia, but it cannot be cured. Corticosteroids are the main treatment and about 82 percent of people respond positively to this therapy, but with many side effects.

Blood transfusions are often used to treat severe cases of the disease, and bone marrow transplantation is the third mode of treatment, which can cure the hematologic aspects of the disease. Many studies are currently being conducted and many charity events are organized around the world to raise money for this research.
