Dad Gets Feeding Tube To Match His Son

A great story is making the rounds and going viral this week – a father who got a fake feeding tube attached so that he can match his son to help him not feel different.

My (1 out of 100) Mr. #stealyourheart #teamchace 🤴🏾 is sucking in his stomach, trying to show off his abs like his daddy but all you see are his little ribs. 😦😁💪🏾 I just cut and glued one of his G-tube on me to show support for him and bring awareness. My son was born with a Congenital Heart Defect (#chd) called Tetralogy of Fallot (#tof) and he uses a Feeding-Tube (#gtube) to help with him being under weight due to him not eating orally as much as a baby. But as long as I'm breathing, I'll always support my son and he'll never be in a fight alone. 😊✊🏾👍🏾 05 || ²2 || ¹7 ( Fox News, Daily, WUSA9, ABC News, have posted about it or did an article on his story). . . #tloce #thelifeofchaceelijah #niafa #neverinafightalone . . #tsrletmetellyou #congenitalheartdefect #chdwarrior #chdawareness #chdsurvivor #heartdefect #heartwarrior #heartsurgery #chd #tetralogyoffallot #clothdiapers #openheartsurgery #tof #smib #pha #gtube #feedingtubeawareness #openheartsurgery  #childrenshospital #daddyduties #jimmykimmel #ellendegeneres #ellenshow #happyfathersday

Robert Shelby’s son was born with a heart defect, which required him to wear a feeding tube attached to his stomach all the time.  Not wanting his son to feel different, Shelby got his own fake feeding tube attached to match his son’s and they both couldn’t look happier.

Robert said about it, “As long as I’m breathing, I`ll always support my son and he’ll never be in a fight alone.”
