Anyone you know, love, or support has had to persevere through health obstacles, this is a must read.
Through anecdotes and stories, Nikki provides perspective that only a few individuals possess. She is someone who has experienced many highs and lows, and yet, inspirationally, has persisted. Nikki demonstrates all of this, and more, throughout her memoir, detailing vital lessons, and weaving themes that any individual seeking progress can use
Nikki's authentic testimonial and personal story is such a powerful read. As
a mother of a child who has health challenges, this book gave me an invaluable gift, the gift of understanding, empathy and perspective. After reading "BADASS grATTITUDE", I now see my son's experiences in a whole new
way, how he is experiencing life. Without reading this book, I would have never fully appreciated what he goes through. If anyone you know, love, or
support has had to persevere through health obstacles, this is a must read.
When I began the book, my mother was having dialysis for the first time. With Mom being a juvenile onset diabetic, having undergone the surgery for Diabetic Retinopathy and becoming legally blind, it was easy for me to connect with the book and the author. But the book certainly transcends those specific struggles... I began reading as an observer of others but as I closed in on the last few pages a remarkable transition to an inward reflection had taken place. A hopefulness saturated by gratitude. Thank you Nikki for "baring all" so I could reflect on inward struggles, cast in the light of hope rather than hidden in the lap of discouragement!
