Audrey Nethery Biography & Age
Audrey Nethery was born on 20 October 2008 in Kentucky, USA. Since her birth, Audrey Nethery is a special child. She was born too early with several holes in her heart. It was the first battle that Audrey Nethery fought with the help of surgery. However, despite the surgery, she still suffered from a low blood cell count and this led to the discovery of her disease, Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a condition in which the body is unable to produce enough red blood cells.
Despite several attempts with various solutions, including a blood cell transfusion and injection of a form of steroid, prednisolone, Audrey Nethery could not defeat the disease and therefore used a combination of both solutions to sustain her life. The side effect of the solution was that it curbed Audrey’s growth, which means she still looks like an infant, even though she is much older than one.
Despite this challenge, Audrey and her family have remained positive, strong enough to share her joy with the world. After falling in love with dancing as a child, Audrey, with the help of her parents, has hooked up with YouTube and Facebook to share her dance art with the world.
One of her favorite dance styles is Zumba dance, and the charm she exerted on people during her first Zumba dance class was recorded by her mother and uploaded to Facebook. The video was virtualized with several comments of appreciation and support from Facebook users around the world. As a result, an unknowing Zumba star was born, which is reflected in all social media. On Facebook, she has over 1.5 million followers, while her YouTube channel, named Audrey Nethery, has thousands of subscribers with several million hits.
