A MARCH police sergeant is taking to the slopes of Snowdon to raise money for Doddington Hospital.

For most of us, this would not be too difficult, but just eight months ago, Becky Mueller was in a horrific car crash that left her with brain and spine injuries.

The 35-year-old mother has battled back from partial paralysis and has returned to work. Now she wants to thank the Neurology department at Doddington Hospital for all the help it has given her during her rehabilitation.

Becky was in the front seat of a car when it crashed between Coates and March last August.

She said: “I lost the use of my left side. I had to wait to see if my spine had been damaged. It was very frightening.”

Becky was treated in Peterborough following her accident and had to go to a rehab centre where she learned to walk again.

“I just couldn’t remember how to do it. It was very bizarre,” she recalled.

Becky’s treatment is still ongoing and she has been left with dyslexia and balance issues. She has received a lot of support from Doddington Hospital and said they have been “amazing”.

Her Snowdon trek has only been a few weeks in the planning, but Becky has been working on improving her fitness for much longer. She has got sticks to help her walk up the Welsh mountain and said she will do it, no matter what.

Accompanying her will be husband Kris and two of their children Kallum (14) and Sasha (12).

She is only expecting to raise a couple of hundred pounds for the department, but is planning to do more fundraising events in the future.

Becky has sponsor forms for her trek in Tagus in Dartford Road, Flowers 4 Events in Broad Street and the Oliver Cromwell Hotel.
