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.
