In May of this year, Audrey had what doctors determined was a nocturnal seizure while sleeping. This was highly unusual, as Audrey is an otherwise healthy and active marathon runner, who is always jetting off to some far away locale or dancing in the aisles at a country-western concert. People often compare her to Waldo asking, Where’s Audrey? She is always on the move. Her doctor ordered a CT scan which revealed abnormal shading in the left frontal lobe area of her brain. Upon further testing, this shading was confirmed to be a mass or tumor. Audrey and her family did their homework and consulted with several neurological experts regarding the best course of treatment. Ultimately, it was decided that the tumor would be removed and the procedure was successfully completed at Stanford Hospital on June 25th. A biopsy was recently completed and the tumor has been confirmed to be Grade III cancer.
Audrey will be heading to Texas to complete chemotherapy and radiation treatment, which is expected to last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. After consultation with her doctors at Stanford, the treatment will take place at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. MD Anderson is renowned as the leading cancer treatment facility in the country. This will enable Audrey to be supported by the love and encouragement of her family there in Texas, while receiving top-notch, cutting-edge care.
Audrey is a beautiful light, whose love, laughter and warmth touches the lives of so many. She is a vibrant, energetic, and talented woman who has accomplished much in her life and who has even greater things on the horizon. Her dynamic spirit knows no bounds. She is strong at the core, a tough Texas girl, through and through. We have every expectation that she will confidently face this challenge just as she has every other in her life. And that we will see her back in the stands cheering her beloved Rangers to victory, while belting out a Randy Houser tune!
The next steps in Audrey’s care are already in motion. The plan for the treatment phase is for her to be driven by a family member from their home base in Dallas to Houston (or the surrounding area) each week for treatment. As Houston is approximately four hours away, they will stay in a hotel for the week and return to Dallas on the weekend. She will not return to work for the remainder of the year.
The donations received on this page will go directly to assisting Audrey with out of pocket medical costs, lodging, transportation, food, medications, and any other expenses related to her treatment and care. Any contribution to this effort, no matter how small, will be welcomed with the utmost gratitude of Audrey and her family.
Please visit Audrey’s FB Care page to share words of encouragement with her. The comfort of friends will be a tremendous help to her in the coming months.
Thank you for your love, support and continued prayers.

I don't have everyone's residential mailing address since I'm here in Texas. I have special thank you cards for all of you that have helped me with everything from $ to flowers to dinners and everything in between. Please privately email me your address so I can send you a fun thank you.
** You can email Audrey at email@example.com or reply to me privately with you info and I will pass it on.
Thank You so much
I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge all of the love, support, donations, meals, gifts, house cleaning services, accounting services, hotel reservations, etc. that you all have showered over Audrey. The list truly goes on and on and on. I have not participated in much philanthropy in my life. I’m that parent that volunteers at her child’s school carnival. I buy gift wrap from cute little kids in our neighborhood and my BIG contributions come when I end up with multiple football discount cards or Passbooks because I know numerous kids selling the same item at the same time. I buy for my children’s school district, music program or athletic program and donate regularly at the Good Will drive through. (I’m even a lazy giver!) I’ve never “Raced for a Cure” or run multiple marathons like Audrey has. She’s always given unselfishly. She donates money, exerts strenuous physical activity and regularly holds fund raising events. She never does it to eat the Girl Scout Cookie, receive the tax donation receipt or to clean out her closet (like I do!). Audrey’s always been passionate about making the world better. She has this gorgeously innocent perspective on making change. She is a diehard supporter of our military troops and is always optimistic and excited to find cures for illnesses such as breast cancer. She knows she can make a difference. Audrey is so selfless and never, ever expects a thing in return. She is this extraordinary energy within my parameters of ordinary.
Thank you all for allowing my sister to personally feel something that she has always exuded to others. It’s honestly not about a donation size, since money is so personally relevant to each individual, but the fact that in such a short amount of time hundreds of people want to remove burden from my sister’s shoulders. People that love her or know somebody that loves her want to reduce her stress and worry by lightening her financial load, distracting her at a movie, bringing her a favorite Starbucks coffee, garnishing her with jewelry, using personal airline miles to fly her niece and nephew out for her surgery, or making a telephone call to get her into a prestigious surgeon. It is completely mind boggling to feel this type of love and support directly. It’s beautiful and overwhelming, and I hope it fills you all with the same light, hope and faith that is carrying Audrey and our entire family through this entire process. Our family loves you all for filling our little “Ba Ba” with so much love and motivation. Thank you for allowing us to turn off the six o’clock news and witness the dynamic and beautiful side to being human! #Audreystrong — with Audrey Scott.
Thank you so much to all who have donated.... This site has been up for 5 days and look at how much we have raised! Your generosity is a fitting tribute to Audrey. Let's keep it going "Audreystrong".
It has been amazing and we are truly blessed to have such caring friends and family. Thank you to all the friends, family and Law Enforcement organizations that have contributed to our fund raising effort. (Shout out to our own Redwood City Police Department! We are a family.)
I wanted to say that in difficult times angels around us reveal themselves. Our heartfelt thanks go out to you all... Audrey's angels.
Finally, I'd like to share the comment of a generous, anonymous donor who said, "Audrey's path in life is helping others- whether it's 911, or to help friends blow off steam at the ole Wine Bar. Here's some good Karma for all those lives she's touched!" This moved me because Audrey has always been such a giver in every way and as Karma would have it, I think it's her time to receive.
Thank you all so much for the great start, let's keep it going! (Can't stop. Won't stop.)
I was so glad I was able to stop by & visit yesterday. If I don't get a chance to catch up later, please know that you are constantly on my mind and in my prayers. May God grant you traveling mercies and give you peace. You've got this Auds! Blueberry is rooting for u! God speed!
Buster! We love you!!!
Such amazing words for an amazing lady! We love you Audrey! XOXO #audreystrong
