Karen Betts and Alex Lewis win the Most Inspirational Person of the Year Award 2018
Karen Betts and Alex Lewis were presented with the Most Inspirational of the Year Award at the Safety in Beauty Diamond Awards.
The Aesthetic and Beauty industries came together on Saturday 7th July in London to celebrate another year of pride and success at The Montcalm Hotel. The theme for the evening was the ‘Rainbow Ball’ which saw carnival dancers, glitz and glamour erupt throughout the evening.
Alex Lewis is one of Karen Betts’ most inspirational clients. One November morning he woke up thinking he was suffering from ‘Man Flu’, but a few days later, he was in hospital being supported by Life Support machinery.
Alex had contracted a rare Strep A infection which was attacking his body and ultimately saw Alex lose all four limbs and part of his lips and mouth.
After cutting-edge cosmetic surgery with Alexandra Crick to rebuild Alex’s mouth area, Karen stepped in to restore Alex’s lips with her skilful application of permanent makeup.
Over the years, Karen has successfully created new lips for Alex and is supporting Alex further by giving him complimentary permanent makeup treatments for life. Karen also donates 1% of her business earnings to the Alex Lewis Trust – a trust set up to help fund Alex’s rehabilitation costs including wheelchairs, home adjustments and prosthetics.
Karen is honoured to have received such a prestigious award alongside Alex Lewis and is proud to add it to her ever-growing list of accolades.
