Ashley Baker: Advocate, Artist, and Lyme Patient
Ashley Baker is a Lyme patient from Clear Spring, Maryland. During her childhood, she spent a lot of time in the woods and parks around her home, including the C&O Canal.

However, she has worked hard to overcome her illness and change the narrative surrounding the disease. This is her story.
