The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, California, and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Barnes died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little-known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. The care Barnes and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

“Carol exemplifies what it is to be a great nurse,” says Dosher Chief Nursing Officer Catherine Mohr, RN, DNP. “Skillful, dedicated, compassionate, one hundred percent committed to great patient care and highly respected by her colleagues. Our great nursing team at Dosher extends this highly worthy candidate our heartfelt congratulations on earning this recognition.”
