The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget!


Thank you for taking the time to nominate an extraordinary nurse for this award. We’d love to include you in the recognition celebration for the nomination, as well as in the ceremony if your nurse is selected for the bi-annual DAISY Award. Please provide us with your contact information:
