Watch: 6-year-old with rare blood disorder performs like a rockstar



Meet Audrey Nethery, a 6-year-old who has become an Internet sensation and people love her. She is from Louisville, Kentucky and has a liking for music.

She suffers from rare blood disorder, Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA).

According to Genetic Home Referance, Diamond-Blackfan anemia is a disorder of the bone marrow. The major function of bone marrow is to produce new blood cells. InDBA , the bone marrow malfunctions and fails to make enough red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the body’s tissues. The resulting shortage of red blood cells (anemia) usually becomes apparent during the first year of life. Symptoms of anemia include fatigue, weakness, and an abnormally pale appearance

She has already undergone 20 blood transfusions, and her growth is notably slower than that of other kids because of the steroids she has to take.
