One Tough Cookie Wellness Programs
One Tough Cookie's Wellness Program have been designed to address all things body, mind, and soul.
At OTC we strongly believe that if your mind and your spirit are not in the right place, fighting cancer and its effects will be that much harder. Therefore, through these programs, it is our hope to bring you useful information and tools that you can apply to your daily regimen.
As always we strongly recommend consulting your Dr. before doing anything strenuous or out of your normal routine.
