Hi! I’m Niki.
A Brit in the USA, avid tea drinker and dog lover, who longs to see women live life to the full, not matter what comes their way.
After losing my mum and sister to cancer, and then being diagnosed with rectal cancer myself (yes, rectal!) I decided I didn’t want to just survive, I wanted to thrive. Jesus said He came to give us life in all it’s fullness and I was determined to find it, even amongst the rubble of my cancer and grief.
I discovered life doesn’t have to be pain free to be full and friend, if I can live life to the full, so can you.
Thriving is a team sport and we’re in this
