The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.) During Pat's 8-week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided, not only to Pat, but everyone in his family. So one of the goals they set in creating a 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 super-human work they do every day.

Each DAISY award honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony in her/his unit and will receive a certificate, a DAISY award pin, and a hand carved stone sculpture entitled "A Healer's Touch." Additionally, everyone in the unit of the honoree will celebrate with Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, a favorite of Patrick's family during his illness.
