About One Tough Cookie

Dealing with something traumatic like cancer is never easy. For many, it can bring on a sense of loss, anxiety, and/or depression. And when you have to do it on your own it makes things 10 times harder. Some of us, though we have someone by our side, still feel alone because of the front we have to put for the sake of others. This is especially true when we have someone depending on us. Whether it be your child, friend, spouse, etc your determination to keep it moving is unstoppable. And though the emotions that you feel inside can be or are overwhelming and at times frustrating, you still continue with strength. That to us is "One Tough Cookie". And that is who we are here to cheer on and rally around.

Based out of Stamford, CT (servicing lower Fairfield and upper Westchester counties and locations within 20 miles of Stamford), One Tough Cookie is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide support and encouragement through care packages, peer to peer support, music, comedic relief, wellness programs and charitable events. Our vision is to send out the message of love, compassion, and unity through every gift bag delivered. Whether you have begun treatment, are about to begin or are a caregiver, we are here to walk the walk and celebrate the end of this journey with you. Most importantly we are here to remind you that CANCER SUCKS but it doesn’t have to make you crumble!
