Winna After her breast cancer diagnosis, Winna made the difficult decision to have mastectomies even though it was suggested to have a lumpectomy.

I live by the words “You are a fighter and you will make it.” It’s important for children in my community to have role models and I hope that I will be able to inspire and influence them just like other doctors inspired me.

OTB Stories

How OTB helped Tammi Leader Fuller & Campowerment through Hard Times

Meet Tammi Leader Fuller, one of our OTB Sisterhood Founding members, and founder of Give Her Camp and Campowerment. In November 2018, her business lost everything in the Malibu Fires. She’s sharing her story of how One Tough Bitch got her through, and continues to lift her up during this difficult time of rebuilding. From the moment I heard about One Tough Bitch, I knew I had one living deep inside me, usually rearing her lovely head to take me out of mine in the 11th hour of whatever crisis was in front of me, when I really need her to comfort my crazy, like last week as I headed up to Malibu to see the remains of a dream I’ve had, reduced to ashes in those horrific fires last month. I threw on my One Tough Bitch jean jacket the moment I got in the car, hoping she would come through for me as I prepared to walk through the destruction on that hilltop. I’m not sure I could have endured this without her. For 34 years, I was a TV News Producer, and in 2013, walked out of the control room and into the woods to create Campowerment, [...]
