February 10-16, 2013 is Feeding Tube Awareness Week!
This annual event was created by the Feeding Tube Awareness Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides support to parents of children who are tube-fed and helps to raise positive awareness of tube feeding as a life-saving medical intervention.
The theme for Feeding Tube Awareness Week 2013, “You’re Not Alone,” underscores the importance of connecting with other families of tube-fed children. Feeding Tube Week provides resources for and inspires parents to:
• Contact the media to have their stories heard
• Educate teachers and classmates about tube feeding during Feeding Tube Awareness Week
• Blog, email or post videos about day-to-day life with a tube-fed child
