Taking pride in Nikki’s life

First published in Opinion

THE life of Nikki Hastings was too short, but in recent years it must have been full of moments she thought she would not see.

Nikki was given months to live in 2008, but she survived past her 40th birthday.

Her blog posts for the Daily Echo were always compelling and moving. In her last post, in 2012, she wrote: “I will feel that I achieved my aim if I helped even one person to feel less alone or one person to understand better what a loved one was going through.”

Nikki achieved that goal many times over. No wonder her grieving mum is feeling “incredibly proud”.
