I want to thank you and your family for developing the DAISY Award. I was nominated by my co-workers and am a grateful recipient. This award came at a time when I have been struggling to keep my heart in my job, wondering if I should leave my job to do something that would be easier, less demanding of my time and energy. The death of a beloved co-worker from cancer a few months ago had added to my feeling that perhaps I should just move on rather than accept the challenge of training the new staff needed for our clinic. To have my co-worker honor me with this award was a complete surprise and a uplifting event for me. Please accept my thanks and admiration for your development of this positive program to honor nurses and encourage research that will help patients.
