'I want to die beautiful,' says cancer patient Lisa Connell.
A woman with an inoperable brain tumour is spending £40,000 on plastic surgery – so she can die looking like movie star Demi Moore.
Lisa Connell, 29, will use the money her mum Angela had saved up for Lisa’s wedding to pay for her new look.
“I’ve always dreamed of looking like Demi Moore and I’m determined that when I die I will,” she said.
Despite being a stunning brunette, Lisa has never been happy with her appearance and is convinced the surgery will make her look as beautiful as Demi, who is no stranger to cosmetic surgery herself.
She added: “People think I’m crazy for wanting to do this, but I know it will make my last months or years happier. I want to die beautiful. This is my way of getting the control back in my life.”
The things people will waste money on. Irony would be if she died whilst still bandaged from the surgery . . . .
