Nikki Bradley was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer (Ewing’s Sarcoma) at the age of 16. She received the news that she would remain on crutches permanently and, in the future, may face full right leg amputation. Since then, she has undertaken several incredible challenges to both raise awareness for the rare disease and highlight the importance of exercise for rehabilitation. Some of those challenges have included completing the Fan Dance race, a Guinness World Record attempt in Holland, climbing a route of the Sólheimajökull glacier in Iceland, abseiling into a 45-foot ice cave, numerous mountain climbs and becoming the first woman to abseil off Fanad Head Lighthouse.
Here she tells us her story and how she has managed to live life to the full despite a number of very challenging setbacks. If this doesn’t leave you feeling inspired nothing will!
