About The DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the Barnes family in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at the age of 30 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP).

Touched by the remarkable care, clinical skills and compassion demonstrated by nurses during Patrick’s illness, the Barnes family made it their mission to recognize exceptional nurses around the country.
