The DAISY Foundation

DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes in 1999 after he died at 33 years old from complications of the auto-immune disease, Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITC).

Patrick’s family wanted to do something in memory of him. They felt compelled to say thank you to the nurses who helped him throughout his illness. They were so moved by the way the nurses talked to Patrick and by all the little things they did to make him comfortable.

Patrick’s family created the DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses to honor the compassion of nurses everywhere and to provide a way for families and others to express their gratitude through the meaningful recognition of nurses. More than 5,000 healthcare facilities throughout the world have honored their nurses through the program.
