Audrey Nethery is one of our favorite (and most adorable) guests -- and considering her videos (like this one of her dancing with the Brooklynettes) have been viewed over 20 million times online -- we’re guessing she’s one of your favorites, too!
Watch as Audrey and her family explore LA during their trip to the west coast for the Global Genes 5th Annual Tribute to Champions of Hope gala, which honors and celebrates rare disease advocates, scientists, patients and supporters. While they were out there, they stopped by the set of Disney Channel’s “Stuck in the Middle” (one of Audrey’s favorite shows) where she was beyond thrilled to get a personal tour from Jenna Ortega, who plays the main character Harley.

In addition to winning the Spirit Award at the gala, Audrey also showed off her karaoke and dance skills, continuing to raise awareness to Diamond-Blackfan Anemia, a rare bone marrow disease, while sharing joy and hope through her performances. She was more than happy to give us a special encore.
What was Audrey’s favorite part of the trip to California?
“It was a fun gala and I got to meet all kinds of people,” she says.
Did her parents ever think when they posted that first video online that Audrey would be getting such a special honor only a year later?
“We’re just so proud of her,” says her dad Scott.
Rach also had a surprise for Audrey: an early birthday present from American Girl, complete with a look-alike doll, furniture, outfits, accessories and books.
Watch the video for Audrey's response (all could muster was “wooooow” as her gift was wheeled on-stage). “Ok, Audrey’s done talking to us,” joked Rach as she happily dove into her present.
