“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,” Nicky wrote in the heartbreaking post.

“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.

“You have all become a part of my legacy, my “Instagramily” in MR.G’s words and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for being here every step of the way. There is more to come (with some amazing things in the works) that will aim to continue that legacy, so stick around and keep being the amazing bootiful hoomans you all already are!

She concluded: “I’m a believer in energies and if people hold on to the positive energy we have created from this and other pages like it, then I will always be with you.

“Mr.G has some words to follow as we both wanted to do this part together. Love you all my bootiful hoomans!”
