Kiko Matthews

Fastest Woman to Solo Row the Atlantic

Kiko Matthews led a relatively normal life. She was a science teacher and life was good. Then things took a turn, changing her life forever. In 2009, Kiko was diagnosed with Cushing’s, a condition caused by a tumour on the pituitary gland, and nearly lost her life. Walking was a challenge, and climbing stairs a major achievement. She suffered from diabetes, insomnia, memory loss, psychosis, muscle wasting, osteoporosis, puffy face and stomach, and excessive hair growth. Kiko Matthews met her challenges head-on and made the decision to live her life and challenge both her mind and body to see what she was capable of. She did not disappoint.

“…I see challenge as an opportunity to develop skills and knowledge as well as resilience, confidence and relationships.” – Kiko Matthews
