KAREN’S CAMPAIGN
FOR THE INCREDIBLE ALEX LEWIS

FACING THE FUTURE TOGETHER


KAREN’S CAMPAIGN FOR THE INCREDIBLE ALEX LEWIS

FACING THE FUTURE TOGETHER


“When I first met Alex, he told me how his young son had struggled to come to terms with his drastically altered appearance and was reluctant to kiss him. I just knew I had to help him on his journey.”


Watch Alex's inspiring story

ALEX’S STORY

It all began in November 2013, when he came down with a cold. But Alex’s sniffles and aching joints turned out to be a Strep A infection, which very quickly escalated into toxic shock syndrome, septicaemia and necrotising fasciitis. It ravaged his body and face, leaving doctors no choice but to amputate his limbs and cut away the gangrenous parts of his lips.

As part of his rehabilitation, Alex’s amazing plastic surgeon Alexandra Crick used cutting-edge surgery to rebuild his face, creating new lips for him using skin grafts from his shoulder.


WHEN KAREN MET ALEX

Alex is one of Karen’s most inspirational clients.

The cosmetic tattooing Alex required after his facial reconstruction is not available on the NHS, so Karen agreed to undertake an incredible pigment alignment and 3D lip simulation treatment, and she’s providing Alex with free permanent cosmetics procedures for life.

Karen has also made it her mission to help to raise money for the Alex Lewis Trust – a fund set up to facilitate as full and independent a life as possible for Alex.




ALEX’S JOURNEY WITH KAREN...



Alex, before any of the treatment commenced with Karen.



Pointlism started to mimic freckles whilst also creating the definition for the lips.



Shading has been added to create natural looking lines.



Now lips and face completed and healed.

ALEX’S INSPIRATIONAL RECOVERY

Today, Alex is embracing life and all it’s new challenges, doing more than a lot of able-bodied people. As well as being a motivational speaker, he is working with the NHS and several UK universities and tech companies to help advance treatments and technology that will help severely disabled people both mentally and physically.

He’s also started a new company designing aesthetically pleasing interiors for people living with disabilities, and he’s taken up hand cycling and kayaking using custom-made prosthetics.
