The Feeding Tube Awareness Foundation is hosting its third annual Feeding Tube Awareness week in February.
The mission of Awareness Week is to promote the positive benefits of feeding tubes as a life saving medical intervention. The week also serves to educate the broader public about the medical reasons that children are tube fed, the challenges that tube feeding families face and day-to-day life with a tube fed child. Feeding Tube Awareness Week connects tube feeding families. Seeing how many other families are going through similar things makes people feel less alone.
Please visit www.feedingtubeawareness.org for additional information on this event which reached over 34,000 people on their Facebook page alone last year.
Feeding Tube Awareness Week is co-hosted by The Oley Foundation which is a national, independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides information and psycho-social support to consumers of home parenteral (IV) and enteral (Tube-fed) nutrition (homePEN), helping them live fuller, richer lives.
