Hi my name is Nikki Bradley, I am 29 years old and currently residing in Donegal, Ireland. I have set myself the challenge of getting as fit as I can and maintaining that level of fitness. What makes my blog different from other fitness blogs is that I have various disabilities that will slow my progress down. I have had two total right hip replacements and have chronic nerve and muscle damage along with a whole host of other ailments! Having said that, I am determined not to let my disabilities get in my way. I hope this will inspire others in similar situations.
I am using fitness in my campaign Fighting Fit For Ewing’s. Ewing’s Sarcoma is a rare form of bone cancer that I battled in 2003. I have been cancer free for twelve years thankfully, although the treatment I went through has left me unable to walk. I use crutches permanently and experience pain on a daily basis. My hip is getting progressively worse and there is nothing my doctors can do for me anymore. Depressing right?? Well I chose not to think like that because quite simply, what is the point?. It won’t change my situation or make a single difference to my health and that is what I am learning. Having a positive attitude can make even the most unbearable situation bearable.
This blog will follow my progress…
