What is The Daisy Award
DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY Foundation was formed in January 2000, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33, due to complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). Everyone who has met Pat even once was touched by his positive spirit and his sense of humor. A two time survivor of Hodgkin's Disease, Pat was driven by a desire to befriend others and help them in any way he could. His legacy is clear: whenever he came across someone in need, he never turned his back on them. He reached out to comfort and to make them feel OK. Pat was a natural mentor and nurturer, sharing his phenomenally positive outlook on life with a wide network of friends and family around the country with whom he stay in constant contact. The DAISY Foundation was established to keep his very special spirit alive.
As we brainstormed what to do in Pat's memory, the one really positive thing we could hold onto from the experience of his 8 week illness was the SKILLFUL and AMAZINGLY COMPASSIONATE CARE he received from his nurses - even when he was totally sedated. We created The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses to recognize the super-human work nurses do every day all over the country.
