“Noble Horizons saved my life!” Jill Sheffield’s Christmas miracle

As the passionate founder of a leading global advocate for women’s health, Jill Sheffield has spent her career saving lives. One Christmas Eve night, however, it was her own life that was in peril…

When knee pain prevented Jill from doing the work she so loved, a double knee replacement seemed the best way to get her back to job as quickly as possible. What she didn’t count on, however, was developing an infection so severe that she had to undergo emergency surgery to remove her knee replacements and endure three months of intensive intravenous therapy to vanquish the raging infection.

When the hospital finally discharged Jill home, her condition began to worsen. She urgently needed specialized care and it was Christmas Eve. In desperation, her husband Jim called Noble Horizons who welcomed her that night.

Jill awoke at Noble on Christmas morning and began her long road to recovery. “I was really sick,” she recalls. “I didn’t want to eat. Noble’s chef came to see me to ask what he could make for me. The ambiance and the attitude of the people were wonderful. They took such good care of me.”

Three months later, the nurses and caregivers who had nurtured Jill back to health, prepared to say good bye. “Noble Horizons saved my life,” Jill will tell you.

Jill continues to do her own part to save lives across the globe and Noble Horizons, with generous help from generations of caring people like you, continues to offer the finest care in the northwest corner.
