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, One Tough Cookie is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide support and encouragement through uplifting 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 program we offer. Whether you have begun treatment, are about to begin, or are a caregiver (loved one or nurses staff), we are here to walk the walk and help provide a positive outlet or escape during your journey.
Most importantly we are here to remind you that CANCER SUCKS but it doesn’t have to make you crumble!
"A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal" -Steve Maraboli
