After contracting a serious case of Lyme and Bartonella in 2014, which was misdiagnosed by a dozen doctors, leading to heart failure, Parish was determined to help change the status quo. By teaming up with Dr. Steven Phillips and famed Duke Oncologist, Dr. Neil Spector, she helped found a biotech company, Kyronyx, which is leading the way toward a cure for these rampant, incurable infections.

Parish has become a leading public face of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases and sits on the advisory board of the Bay Area Lyme Foundation, who recognized her with their first Courage Award in 2017. Dana and Dr. Phillips were also honored by Harvard’s The Dean Center for Tick-Borne Illness in 2019 as “People Who Inspire.”
