Nicky’s husband shared her statement on their Instagram account – and it included her catchphrase "go grab life".
The heartbreaking message read: "If you’re reading this it means I have died, I made it 5 & half years though, not bad for a stage 4 breastie ey.
"And none of this ‘she fought her battle nonsense’, I didn’t lose anything, the cancer eventually took over & that’s okay, we all knew this would happen.
"I don’t think we are ever prepared to hear the words, we think we are indestructible & a magic cure will appear, but the truth is we all live this life day to day (we just knew our days are shorter).
"So please promise me to cherish those around you and give your friends and loved ones the biggest squeezes! GO GRAB LIFE! You never truly know what is coming around the corner – so don’t take anything for granted."
Nicky was first diagnosed with breast cancer more than five years ago while she was in the midst of fertility treatment with her husband.
She noticed a change in her breast and complained of severe back pain.
She was then diagnosed with incurable metastatic breast cancer, which later developed into bone cancer.
Nicky said that long with a lump in her right boob, the 30-year-old noticed that her nipple had inverted, the skin was dimpling and she had a rash on one side.
