About The DAISY Foundation

The Daisy Foundation was formed in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP). The nursing care Patrick received during his eight-week hospitalization profoundly touched his family. To recognize the extraordinary nurses that helped them through their darkest hours, Patrick's family created The DAISY Foundation, standing for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem.

The DAISY Foundation expresses gratitude to Nurses for the extraordinary compassionate, skillful care they provide patients and families. By honoring compassionate nurses, DAISY reinforces the importance of compassion in healthcare. Today, DAISY proudly honors Nurses wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve, and throughout their careers, from nursing students through lifetime achievement.
