History of the DAISY Award At age 33, J. Patrick Barnes passed away due to complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). His family was so impressed by the compassionate care he received during his hospital stay that they decided to create The DAISY Foundation and The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses as a way to say “thank you”. Patrick’s wife, Tena came up with the acronym DAISY which stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.
