The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. Having been touched by the remarkable care, clinical skills and compassion demonstrated by nurses during Patrick's illness, the Barnes family established the Foundation to recognize and support exceptional nurses around the country.
