About the DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the autoimmune disease idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura at the age of 33. DAISY is an acronym for the names of diseases that attack the immune system. During Pat's eight-week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided, not only to Pat, but to everyone in his family. So one of the goals they set in creating the Foundation in Pat's memory was to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people by the superhuman work they do every day.
