Last Thursday (11th April) PR Coordinator, Lynsey joined Karen and Bridgette in London to attend “My Beautiful Ball 2013 in aid of The Katie Piper Foundation”. Here is a lovely article from Lynsey about the event, The Katie Piper Foundation and the fabulous work that goes on.
“Having played an instrumental part in setting up Karen’s medical tattoo clinics for the foundation in 2012, I felt honoured to be invited to attend ‘My Beautiful Ball 2013’ in aid of The Katie Piper Foundation.
Katie, as usual, looked stunning and gave a very honest account of how the Foundation and all its supporters really make a significant difference to the lives of those living with burns and scars. I felt very proud of Karen and Bridgette, who work tirelessly to educate people about the difference medical tattooing can make to those living with an altered facial appearance as a result of an accident or illness.
As part of the event, the Foundation played video footage of people they have helped. Two of these video clips came from women, Karen and Bridgette have recently worked with as part of the work they do for the foundation.
Both Nicole and Tulsi gave a very moving response to their eyebrow treatment, which brought a tear to my eye. All too often people take for granted features like eyebrows and ask ‘why would anyone want their eyebrows tattooed?’. Eyebrows make up 70% of our facial features and help us express our emotions so I would advise anyone who asks this question or has thought it to look at this footage. I personally attended Nicole’s appointment and over the months have followed her journey and watched her confidence and self esteem go from strength to strength.
Simply hearing all the stories of all the patients that attend the foundation and listening to them explain how treatments such as eyebrow restoration and specialist hair systems help aid them psychologically on their road to recovery and enable them to face their everyday tasks is so encouraging and the main reason Nouveau continue to support the foundations vision.
As a company we are truly honoured to be associated with The Katie Piper Foundation and consider Katie a true inspiration, we look forward to helping in as many ways as possible for the foreseeable future.”
