One Tough Cookie is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to provide support and encouragement through care packages, peer-to-peer support groups, music, comedy, faith, wellness programs and charitable events to those starting cancer treatment and their caregivers. Everything we provide is in hopes to give some type of comfort during this difficult time and to remind them that they have people rooting for them throughout their journey.
