Katie Piper is a Best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter and charity campaigner who rebuilt her life after surviving a brutal sulphuric acid attack in 2008.
After 40 operations, an induced coma, drastic weight loss and a revolutionary procedure by Dr. Mohammad Ali Jawad, she was able to start her new life, not as a victim but a survivor. Her recovery was only possible with the help of her mother, who left her job to care for Katie while she wore a face mask for 23 hours a day.
Katie turned adversity into opportunity, founding the Katie Piper Foundation to support scar and burn victims, as well as promote the postoperative treatment that benefited Katie’s recovery.
