Simon Weston - essay source

In my essay, i would also like to research Simon Weston- he appeared in the Face Transplant Documentary but is also classed as a sort of celebrity with his charity work and bravery. Simon suffered dreadful burns to his face and hands during the Falklands War and underwent extensive surgery in order to restore to him a face, which is still not 'the norm.' He didn't have a face transplant as this option wasn't given to him- he knew no different. His case provided a high profile illustration of the profound effects that facial disfigurement can have on an individual’s life.
