Simon Cowell with Burn Victim.. Katie Piper

Standing tall and beaming with pride, it is hard to believe that just a year ago she was disfigured and afraid to leave her house.But Katie Piper is the perfect advertisement for the groundbreaking surgery which has given her her beauty back.The 26-year-old former model suffered horrific burns to her face and neck after she became the victim of an acid attack orchestrated by her jealous ex-boyfriend.

She has undergone more than 40 operations including pioneering surgery at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and had five intensive three-week blocks of treatment at the Centre Ster in Lamalou, France.
Now Miss Piper has set up a charity in her name to help hundreds of burns victims get over their injuries and lead a normal life.Patroned by Simon Cowell as well as the doctor who gave the TV presenter her face back, the Katie Piper Foundation will offer medical treatment and support.
