Tabitha Hundt, MBHCA counselor, writes that Audrey  Huddleson has shown good leadership with her volunteer service. On Tuesdays, she is one of the first faces seen when walking into the Medical Office Building. She always has a smile and is willing to help others. She has a very calming demeanor and a great sense of humor, which is very helpful to patients and visitors. She has said many times that she feels good when helping others.

Huddleson was a big supporter of the building of the Delbert Day Cancer Institute. She is a four-time survivor of cancer and has been helpful to others fighting cancer. She believes in empowering others to stay strong in their battle with cancer. Through her generosity, she has shown that she is a positive role model for the community. She has a very strong fighting spirit that a lot of people could learn from.

She has been very open about the struggles she has faced and encourages others to get counseling if they feel they need it. She knows how to make the best out of very difficult situations and looks for and focuses on the positives.
