Karen Betts and Alex Lewis on ITV News - Karen Betts

Alex Lewis thought that he was suffering from the common cold, but just a few days into this illness, Alex found himself fighting for his life.

After contracting a rare Strep A infection, Alex had to have all four limbs removed to save his life. He also lost part of his mouth and lips to the infection which saw him have cutting edge cosmetic surgery to rebuild his face.

During his harrowing recovery process, Karen worked with Alex to provide permanent makeup to restore his lips so that Alex could kiss his son, Sam, once again.

Karen is providing Alex with free permanent makeup procedures for life and supports Alex by donating 1% of her business proceeds to the Alex Lewis Trust. Read more about the amazing Alex Lewis here.
