Audrey spreading Awareness about Diamond Blackfan Anemia
Description
This is my daughter Audrey. She hasa rare blood disorder called Diamond Blackfan Anemia. A person's body who has DBA doesn't make red blood cells ( which are needed to live). Individuals with DBA require blood transfusions roughly every 3-5 weeks to live. Roughly 40% respond to a powerful steroid which stimulates their bone marrow to make red blood cells, but there are many side effects. Audrey would LOVE to appear on the Ellen show to raise awareness on this horrible disease. We are desperately trying to raise research funds to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for this condition. Please visit www.dbafoundation.org for more information. Audrey has a strong spirit and an enormous love for life. She means everything to her mom and I and she brightens everyone's life she encounters. She is also quite the show person and loves to sing and dance. Please enjoy the video and " Give it up for Audrey"!!!!

Audrey is the silliest, cutest little girl and her Mom and Dad are Rock Stars in my book.  They selflessly continue to educate and advocate for their little girl and for other DBA families.  And let me tell you, this kid can bring it.  She is a free-styling dancing queen that will give Ellen a run for her money. She puts her own unique fingerprint on every song she sings or dances to.  And again, love that Mommy and Daddy.  You go, Audrey!  Don't stop doing your thing!

Diamond Blackfan anemia (DBA) is a bone marrow failure disorder. Individuals with Dba don't make red blood cells which carry oxygen in our blood. The only treatments available are blood transfusions, steroid therapy which doesn't work for everyone with Dba or a bone marrow transplant which is extremely risky. There is research occurring right now to find a better treatment and ultimately a cure for this horrible condition. However, Dba is so rare we are always trying to raise funds to pay for the research. You can go to www.dbafoundation.org for more information or to make a donation. Thank you so much for your interest!!

I absolutely love little Audrey Nethery and her dancing to help raise people's awareness of Diamond Blackfan Anemia.  In my grateful heart and mind I see my own 4 year old granddaughter dancing while Audrey dances, and I pray for all the children like Audrey that have DBA.  ELLEN, please have Audrey on your show.  She is such a delight and would be a perfect little guest for your show, especially if you could surprise her with one of her favorites, Taylor Swift!  Thank You, Ellen
