The Oley Foundation was founded in 1983 by Lyn Howard, MD and her patient, Clarence “Oley” Oldenburg, the Oley Foundation is a national, independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that strives to enrich the lives of patients dependent on home intravenous nutrition (parenteral) and tube feeding (enteral) through education, advocacy, and networking. The Foundation also serves as a resource for consumer’s families, clinicians and industry representatives, and other interested parties. Programs are directed by the staff and guidance is provided by a board of dedicated professionals and patients.
This afternoon, I received a email say that I was nominated for the Oley Innovator/ Advocator award 🥇 The award is for TPN consumers who lead by example to promote innovation in nutrition therapy, or by advocating for fellow homePEN consumers.
I'm just filled with excitement and happy to nominated. I think God was looking out for me because had I been listed for transplant now I wouldn't be able to attend. Everything has a silver lining.
