The remarkable Katie Piper is a beautiful young woman rebuilding her life after surviving a brutal attack in March 2008 where sulphuric acid was thrown in her face. Before the attack, Katie was a model and budding TV presenter with a hectic social life and a glowing future in the public eye. The acid destroyed all the skin on Katie's face, neck and hands, and left her blind in one eye. It also burnt her nose and throat so severely that she needed to be fed through a tube in her stomach and now regularly has operations to dilate her esophagus as the scar tissue reforms and restricts her ability to eat and drink.
In 2009, Katie made the decision to give up her anonymity and share her story in a remarkable film on Channel 4 called 'Katie: My Beautiful Face'. With Simon Cowell as patron, Katie set up The Katie Piper Foundation to improve rehabilitation facilities for burns survivors while providing a network of support and information on burns, scars & treatment, both medical and non-medical. This was followed the series for Channel 4 'Katie: My Beautiful Friends'.
