Nikki Bradley is an adaptive adventurer and one of Ireland’s leading female motivational speakers. Diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma at aged 16 and surviving the rare and often deadly form of bone cancer, offered Nikki a unique opportunity to restart her life at a young age. She is the founder of ‘Fighting Fit For Ewing’s’, which aims to increase awareness about the disease as well as participating in physical challenges. The Donegal native attempted a Guinness World Record in Holland, climbed the route of the Solheimajokull glacier in Iceland, completed the Fan Dance – a gruelling 24km trek through the snowy Brecon Beacons in Wales – all while relying on crutches. In July 2018, Nikki became the first crutch user to climb four Irish mountains on crutches in less than 32 hours and in 2019 she completed a summer half marathon and a monumental visit to Tanzania, Africa where she volunteered with suicide prevention organisation ALPS.
Nikki had a Rotationplasty on February 7th of this year. A Rotationplasty is a complex procedure where they amputate the leg and rotate it 180 degrees, reattaching the lower limb at the hip.
Media Appearances: Nikki has worked with all of the national media outlets in Ireland and many in the UK. She has appeared on the Late Late Show, was invited to deliver a TedX talk (access here) and worked with RTE’s Operation Transformation as the Challenge Presenter
