Ashley was born with a rare bone disease called Ollier’s and Maffucci’s syndrome. She has endured 28 surgeries, and is also an ovarian cancer survivor. One would think that her survival means that she already conquered her greatest fear but, in fact, Ashley reveals that vulnerability was her greatest fear. Showing her true self and her disease to the world on social media terrified her, but she decided to take that step. Her bravery has since helped thousands of others accept who they are.
