Ireland's Most Adventurous Crutch User!

Ireland's Most Adventurous Crutch User!

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. On the 26th of August, Nikki made the difficult decision to move forward with surgery to have her right leg amputated. She is currently in training to ensure she is both physically and mentally ready for this life changing procedure. 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.

  • 'We booked Nikki as the after dinner speaker at our annual conference, hoping that our delegates would be inspired by her amazing story, and we were most certainly not disappointed.
    You could have heard a pin drop as Nikki shared her experiences. Speaking simply from her heart, she warmed our hearts and opened them up, so that we too, vowed to face our own challenges with courage, determination and good cheer.
    We were delighted to have Nikki at our conference and are very grateful for her unique, memorable contribution to its success.'

                                                                                                               Sue Doherty, Communications Officer, NIFHA

  • "The speaker for our student bursary evening, Nikki Bradley was outstanding. Nikki really gave the audience inspiration. Her positivity was contagious and the talk was very moving as we had never heard her life story before, which is one we will never forget. We would actively seek out more of Nikki's inspirational talks for future events. A truly lovely person and one we could have listened to for longer!"

  • Nikki is an incredibly authentic speaker. She had her audience of 300 in Alkermes in her hand as she told her amazing story of incredible strength and resilience in such a natural way. I strongly recommend Nikki for any public event where you are looking to have your audience inspired.

    Kevin Brady, Alkermes General Manager

  • "Nikki was our guest speaker at an event we recently held for Foróige, Ireland's leading youth organisation. Nikki has an incredible story to tell and she is an inspiration to all age groups and industries. To go through what she has and come out the other side, stronger and more ambitious is in itself a great story, but the extent she has pushed herself is beyond a great story, it's truly inspirational. I would highly recommend Nikki to any company or organisation."

    Aidan Haughey- Product Development, Foróige.

  • The Irish Blood Transfusion Service held an awards ceremony in Letterkenny on 15th April 2016, Ms. Nikki Bradley was our guest speaker as she had received blood and platelets. Nikki spoke to the donors about how her life had been changed when she was diagnosed and how she had a choice to make in terms of her quality of life and what she could achieve from her life. She decided she was not going to let this condition impact negatively on her life and prevent her from doing the things that she wanted to do. She shared photographs of her abseiling and walking across a glacier in Iceland. It was evident from the pictures that Nikki is someone who does not let adversary get the better of her. She wants to show by her example what can be achieved if you put your mind to it and how strong the human spirit is. She delivered her speech in an inspiring manner and received a standing ovation. Donors left that ceremony knowing the true value of their gift and we at the Irish Blood Transfusion Service were reminded of the imporant work we do.
    Thank you Nikki for sharing your story and for inspiring everyone that night in Letterkenny.

    Andrew Kelly- Chief Executive Irish Blood Transfusion Service

  • "Meeting Nikki was a once in a life time experience. I found her testimony last Saturday evening very inspiring. She talks openly and honestly about her battle with cancer, highlighting the importance of humour and family. Most importantly I left St. Patricks Cathedral with a richer awareness of cancer because of Nikki's speech. Her motto, never give up, resounded with the hundreds of parents and children captivated by her speech.

    I wish Nikki and her wonderful family all the very best for the future. I look forward to meeting Nikki again soon."

    Cllr Daithí Doolan, Dublin.

  • 'We at Zeminar had the pleasure of having Nikki speak to our Generation Z audience at Dublin's RDS, October 2016.

I have no hesitation in recommending this woman as a public speaker.

  • "I started following Nikki on Facebook and found her to be a truly inspiring young woman. There have been many obstacles that have come her way over the past few years yet she has not let them stop her in the slightest. She is so strong and focuses on all the positives. After speaking with Nikki we decided to have a group chat with the ladies that attend my fitness classes. She came in and held a small talk explaining who she was and how she had gone form where she was to where she is now. She also gave the ladies her top 5 tips on how to stay motivated through dark winter months. Everyone was really inspired by Nikki and the tips are helping to keep us all motivated!!

    We wish Nikki the very best for the future and can't wait to have her back in the coming weeks."

    Laura Greene, MD of DL Designers.
