2012 meeting schedule

The idea for starting an Oley Support Group in the Toledo area began about seven years ago, when Marcia Grandsko, RD, LD, attended a national meeting of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.). At this meeting, Rick Davis described his procedure for feeding himself and administering his tube feedings. Standing in front of the audience, he demonstrated his daily routine while describing the support he received from the Oley Foundation.

Upon returning to Toledo, Marcia began looking into creating a local Oley Support Group. Two years later, Marcia met Norman Benway, who was on tube feedings. The two of them worked persistently on creating this support group. Norman then applied for and became an Oley Regional Coordinator (RC) for the Toledo area. Later, Linda Stroshine (enteral consumer), Tammi Stillion (parenteral consumer), Denis Hojnacki (enteral consumer), and Rosaline Wu (parenteral consumer) all joined the group. Rosaline, Linda, and Tammi are RCs

as well. We are so fortunate to have this powerful trio, who have resolved to live life to its fullest with tube feedings and parenteral nutrition. Collectively, they encourage any and all who attend our support group.
