be honored with this prestigious award not only because of how his family’s life was changed, but for the countless other lives that she has touched, and all she does behind the scenes to love and support
He went on to add that his sister is a nurse in Indianapolis, and he recalled her desire to win the Daisy awards during her career – so he fully understood the importance this award is to the nursing community and asked that Northwest Health – Porter do him the honor of selecting Stearns for the next DAISY Award.
