Increasing Feeding Tube Awareness- February is Feeding Tube Awareness Month

Feeding Tube Awareness Week
by Traci Nagy

It started with Sesame Street.  My two and a half year old son, Lucas, and I watch Sesame Street most mornings.  Lucas has a rare chromosomal microdeletion that has caused him to have complete gastroparesis (paralysis of the stomach), among other GI disorders and developmental delays.  He has been on a feeding tube nearly his entire life.
