Nina Ries: I’m thankful for my precious little girl, who we were able to conceive through IVF after so many years of trying – and who wouldn’t still be with us were it not for some astute doctors who were able to diagnose a life threatening heart condition and perform corrective surgery within a couple of days. For that reason, I’m also thankful for doctors, hospitals, and medical research.
