Feeding Tube Awareness Week has ended for 2023. Have you learned anything new?
This medical device is a fact of life for many people.
Some show it off, some hide it.
Some eat by mouth and supplement with the tube, some are strictly tube fed.
Some have it for a short while, others have it for life.

If you see someone eating in a different way, don’t stare! Say hello! They are people, too!
Everyone needs to eat. There is no right or wrong way.
We are aware that some bellies have two buttons!
