Hope And Healing: Giving Back After Healing

Intermountain Healthcare

Bucked off her horse and lying in a dry creek bed, Marie Zaphiropoulos found herself with serious injuries to her forehead, ribs, and back. Marie recalls being greeted at a rural Utah hospital’s emergency department by a kind woman who went to work caring for Marie – even washing her hair. This sparked a desire inside Marie to give back to the hospital that took such good care of her.
