Proving that music can be medicinal, young Audrey is only seven and already a viral video starlet. She credits Taylor Swift with inspiring her, seeing how passionate and spirited she is. As a result, Audrey hoped that if she started singing it would maybe put a little passion and spirit inside her. Boy, was she right.
But Audrey is putting her adorable talent to good use. She’s using the videos she makes to bring attention to her rare medical condition. It is a rare disease called Diamond Blackfan Anemia, and it affects red blood cell count. One of the side effects is a shorter stature, but Audrey’s big heart and big personality more than make up for it!
This is Audrey.
She is 7.
She. is. AWESOME.
And she wants you to know about her rare disease: Diamond Blackfan Anemia.
