KNIX | Support the Girls Campaign

“My body was screaming to heal. It was telling me not to put any more unnatural things into it. I didn’t want more surgery than I needed. Women are not just their bodies and their breasts and whatever they come with. The power of femininity is within.” - Nikki

BEST HEALTH | ‘I Needed to Grieve the Loss of My Breasts’

“Cancer and treatment has the ability to unlock the beauty and beast in every living thing that touches you. It touches parts of your physical and spiritual being that you never thought was imaginable. It tests you. It brings you so close to the feeling of death you can smell it, taste it. And then, moments later you find yourself stopped in the middle of a crazy street during rush hour while staring at a newly bloomed flower blowing in the wind.” - Nikki

MISC Magazine | Feelings at Play

AUG 10, 2018 | AUTHOR MELISSA ATKINSON-GRAHAM &  CHRISTINA DOYLE

" The forms of play in Let’s Radiate are about more than enjoyment and entertainment. To play with practices of radiating love and light for oneself and others is about grappling with existence in its complexities. Nikki has animated worldly sets of relating that begin with feeling in its rawest sense – not for anyone or toward any prefigured end. This is playing with the very substance of being – a critical and radial act for people living with diseases like cancer, who are often forced to focus on preserving their life, not playing with it." - MISC magazine

She Does The City | BODY CONFIDENCE AFTER CANCER: SWIMCO PHOTOSHOOT WITH CAROLYN AND NIKKI

MAY 10, 2018 | AUTHOR JEN MCNEELY

Finding time to be very still and quiet, in order to cut out the outside news and tune into her inner voice, has been a vital exercise for Nikki’s ongoing healing. “Before doctor’s appointments, I was really strict with quiet time. No children, no husband, no one. We’re so mouldable! Through fear, through opinions, through experience–and all of those things can be really helpful. But sometimes it’s important to know intuitively what feels good to you,” says Nikki, whose daily practices of meditation and yoga have helped her honour her body. For a while, Nikki felt as though her body was failing her, but through the help of a trusted mentor, and by listening carefully, she realized that it was doing the opposite: it was working so hard for her. “It’s so resilient if you let it be.” - She Does The City
