An influencer who inspired Britain with her positive campaigning and brave outlook on life, despite battling stage four breast cancer, has died.
Known for her catchphrase, ‘go grab life’, Nicky Newman from Surrey shone a light on the importance of making the most of each day and seizing every opportunity.
The post was previously penned by Nicky in preparation of her death: ‘If you’re reading this it means I have died, I made it 5 and half years though, not bad for a stage 4 breastie ey.’
Despite the heartbreaking news, Nicky remained upbeat in the post and continued to pursue her message to viewers: ‘GO GRAB LIFE! You never truly know what is coming around the corner – so don’t take anything for granted.’
A number of celebrities went on to pay tribute to the influencer in the comment section, including Amy Dowden and Stacey Solomon.
Nicky, who worked in admin for a finance company before her diagnosis, was diagnosed with cancer in April 2018, after finding a lump in her right breast while showering.
She said she knew in her gut that it was bad news.
In the space of a week, Nicky suffered a miscarriage and was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
