Dub Frost or Whitney Frost in real life is an American mom and variety content creator on the social media site TikTok who rose to fame when she started doing mini vlogs to raise awareness on Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD), a very rare and terminal disease that her two youngest children were diagnosed of.
Whitney Frost's Net Worth
In 2022, Whitney Frost is estimated to have a net worth of 200 thousand dollars (1). However, this may be higher since the number of her views, likes, and follows on the social media app TikTok is really high. She also has an Instagram and Youtube account which both have a high following.
Like any other Tiktok content creator Whitney Frost earns her money via the TikTok creator fund. She would also occasionally get brand deals, sponsorships, and collaborations which would earn her a substantial amount of money.
Whitney Frost's Early Life
Dub Frost’s real name is Whitney Frost. She was born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Her birthday is on August 14, 1986, making her 36 years old (2).
Whitney Frost's Education
Whitney Frost is a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management from Western Governors University. She studied at the said university from 2014 to 2018.
It was also in Western Governors University where she obtained her Master of Business Administration from 2019 to 2021.
Whitney Frost's Husband and Family Life
Whitney Frost is married to Jason Frost. They got married on June 15, 2013, and they have two kids together.
Jason Frost proposed to Whitney right after his surgery. Four years after their marriage, Jason Frost was able to adopt Whitney’s daughter from a previous relationship, Natalie.
Whitney and Jason Frost’s marriage resulted in two kids, Riley and Harrison. However, both of the kids have special needs. They both have a very rare terminal disease called Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD).
Basically, the disease is a rare inherited neurological disorder. It affects axons, the part of a nerve cell that carries messages from the brain to other parts of the body, and causes progressive loss of vision, muscular control, and mental skills (3).
Earlier this year, Dub Frost revealed unfortunate news to her TikTok followers. Her six-year-old son, Harrison Frost has died after a long battle with INAD.
“Harrison passed away today at 3.35 pm. He went quickly and did not suffer. We are devastated. But glad he’s no longer in pain. Thank you for loving him and our family,” Frost announced.
In her video, she also revealed that her daughter Riley, who also had INAD is also in a bad shape. In one of her videos, Whitney Frost revealed that her daughter Riley suffers from a really bad GI bleed which worries them a lot.
Whitney Frost and her family are no strangers to financial struggles. With two out of their three children suffering from a very rare and often debilitating disease, finances are really tight.
In order to fund her kid’s medical needs, Whitney Frost has started various GoFundMe accounts for her children. Through this platform, her followers are able to send them financial help which she uses to pay for her children’s medical expenses.
However, the social media personality’s kids are not her only problem. Her husband Jason Frost, also has medical problems that their family has to deal with. After a failed endoscopy, Jason Frost had a punctured stomach lining which caused his stomach acid to leak out into his abdominal cavity thus causing his lungs to collapse.
He was in a coma and ventilator for several weeks (4). Eventually, he was able to recover but was left with a painful hernia in the abdomen. He endured the pain for several years until it was already unbearable for him. In 2020, he had to undergo surgery to fix his hernia. The severe pain that he was experiencing in 2020 was because the hernia that he was enduring for many years was already adhering to his internal organs making it very dangerous.
Harrison Frost and Riley Frost
Harrison Frost and Riley Frost are Whitney Frost’s youngest children. Harrisson and Riley started out as normal kids. However, they slowly lost their abilities to walk, talk and eat. They would also suffer from very painful nerve and muscle spasms. That was when they found out that the children were suffering from Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (IND). It’s a disease that stops their nerves from working.
In a GoFundMe (5) started for the children last 2020, Whitney Frost describes her children’s situation as “being trapped in a paralyzed body”.
The condition of the children was very severe. They had to be fed through g-tubes, they are catheterized, and had to be on oxygen most of the time. The children had to be watched 24/7.
On New Year’s Day 2022, Harrison Frost succumbed to his illness but Harrisons sister Riley Frost is still fighting. Despite her grief, Whitney says that his death was for the better. According to the TikTok star, she is sad but at the same time, she was glad that her son was no longer feeling the pain.
In her recent posts on her Instagram and TikTok accounts, the social media personality can be seen with her children Natalie and Riley.
Whitney Frost's Career
Unlike many TikTok stars, Dub Frost has not planned to start a TikTok career when she initially did videos on the said app. She gained traction when she started doing videos about her two children who are suffering from a rare and deadly disease called INAD.
Dub Frost or Whitney Hayes-Frost in real life, used the social media app TikTok as a platform for advocating for children with special needs. On the app she documents her journey as a mother taking care of two children with special needs.
These videos have aroused the curiosity of a lot of people. They would often leave questions under the comments section of the videos and Dub Frost would patiently answer each one. This has given her the opportunity to educate many about INAD.
A lot of people do not know what Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD), is because of the rarity of this deadly disease. Dub Frost has used TikTok to educate the masses about the existence of this disease.
Despite her noble cause, Dub Frost still manages to get hate on her account. Insensitive people would leave hate comments on her account. They would often call her out on her account because of posting so many videos on her TikTok instead of just taking care of her children.
But what her haters do not understand is that people have different ways of coping with stress. Dub Frost’s way is through posting videos on her account. Living with two children, who are terminally ill is already very stressful. Whitney Frost is also a human and she needs breaks.
