Audrey Nethery Biography, Age
Audrey Nethery was born on the 20th of October, 2008 in Kentucky, US. Right from her birth, Audrey has been a special child. She was born prematurely with multiple holes in the heart. It was the first battle that Audrey defeated with the help of surgeries. However, despite the surgery, she still suffered from low blood cell count and it led to the discovery of her condition, Diamond-Blackfan anemia, which is a medical condition where the body is unable to create enough red blood cells.
Despite trying a couple of solutions, including blood-cell transfusion and the injection of a form of steroid, Prednisolone, Audrey Nethery was unable to defeat the condition, and as a result, has been using a combination of both solutions to sustain her life.
