About this item
When your enemy is clearly visible, it makes fighting them so much easier, than if they are elusive, such as cancer.
Being diagnosed with cancer is everybody's worst nightmare. It is automatically seen as a death sentence. It was no different for Nicolas. His first thoughts were about his mortality, but to help him through his treatment and recovery he used the skills and discipline he had learnt in martial arts.
His ‘Fighting Spirit' helped him deal with everything that cancer brings with it, along with his faith and support network of family and friends. Rather than focusing on the negative, Nicolas remains positive, using references from some of his favourite films to give him direction, steering him towards a healthy, cancer-free future.
The ‘Fighting Spirit' helps Nicolas to see his cancer as an enemy that needs to be defeated in battle. He uses his martial arts mindset to visualise and conquer his foe. There will be only one winner.
