The Daisy Foundation was formed in November 1999, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of an immune disease. The nursing care Patrick received when hospitalized profoundly touched his family so they started the Foundation that also includes a recognition program, The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses (The DAISY Award).
