Neurophysiology's Tough Mudder
Sarah Tyson, Ben Ives, Becky Morrison and Kathryn Corbin make up the four strong team from the Neurophysiology Department at Southampton General Hospital taking part in a full Tough Mudder on the 18th August in aid of Smile4Wessex.
The 10-12 mile course is located in the beautiful countryside of Badminton and will involve series of 20 obstacles, including The Block Ness Monster, Arctic Enema, Everest and Electroshock therapy to name a few!
As well as working within the Wessex Neurological Centre themselves, they each have their own personal reasons for supporting Smile4Wessex:
"Having lost both my grandparents 11 years ago to Neurological disorders, one being a brain tumour, the other a stroke, it is an area that lies deep within my heart" (Sarah Tyson).
"My Mum had an Acute Subdural Haematoma (a bleed between the brain the and the skull) this year. She was rushed to Southampton A&E, scanned then taken to Neurosurgery. She received all her post surgical care on the Neurological wards. Like most patients she had excellent care, but noticed the Neurological center needed more funding" (Ben Ives).
Having witnessed both at work and in the care of important people in my life, the amazing work that the Neurological wards carry out, as well as the kindness and comptency of the staff, I am so happy to raise money to support them. (Becky Morrison).
My cousin suffered severe brain damage at birth and has needed life long support with her health and well being. The needs of those that suffer from neurological events or conditions extend beyond their initial hospital visit and diagnosis and raising money for Smile4Wessex means we can make a vital contribution towards keeping this care going.
