Nikki who founded a fitness based awareness campaign called ‘Fighting Fit For Ewing’s’, regularly participates in physical challenges to highlight the importance of exercise for rehabilitation. When describing the climb she said it was ‘an absolutely brilliant day’ but marked it as her ‘toughest challenge in Ireland to date’.
Nikki walks with crutches due to permanent damage caused by radiotherapy and experiences pain daily. Diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer at sixteen and the receiver of a second hip replacement at the age of twenty six, Nikki has been on a truly unique journey. Since teaming up with Iain Miller however, Nikki has managed to successfully climb numerous mountains along with abseiling and rock climbing despite continued medical set backs.
