About Tubie Friends

Tubie Friends’ mission is to provide comfort, therapy and education for families who are dealing with the challenges of having a child with chronic medical illness. The families we work with have children who have medical devices placed on or in their bodies. We provide the family with a high-quality stuffed animal that is customized for each child. If the child has a feeding tube and a central line, then we will sew a feeding tube and central line into the stuffed animal they request. These are then used to help caregivers, including school personnel, become accustomed to the equipment by practicing on the Tubie Friend. It also is a comfort to the child who feels like he/she is the only one who has a tube like this in his/her body.
