Our facebook page is the largest online support group for tube feeding in the world.
The Feeding Tube Awareness Foundation is dedicated to providing parents and caregivers with the information needed for day-to-day life with a child who is tube-fed. Moreover, we strive to raise awareness so that children who are tube-fed enjoy increased acceptance in society and parents have greater support in their care.
We are not health care professionals, but parents who live it every day. Our goal is to make what is medically complicated, easier to understand.
**Please note that this site should not replace medical information from health care professionals.**

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization! That means your donation is tax-deductible in the United States. Our staff is 100% voluntary and all donations go towards our mission. Stay tuned for more programs that help families and raise awareness!
