DAISY Award - Recognizing Extraordinary Nurses

DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem. The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of ITP, an auto-immune disease. The Barnes Family was so impressed and moved by the skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, that they created this national award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.
