IVF Donation Makes First Mother’s Day Possible for Las Vegas Couple
Date:5/9/2013

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 09, 2013

Mark and Ana Nicolas, who conceived last June through donated In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment, delivered boy/girl twins on April 29, 2013. The boy, who they named Max, weighed 6 lbs. 3 oz. and the girl, named Hope, weighed in at 5 lbs. 1 oz. Ana and Mark were the winners of a drawing for IVF treatment held at an infertility education seminar hosted by Sher Fertility Institute in April 2012.

The Nicolases had been struggling to conceive for several years and felt like they had run out of options as well as finances for fertility treatment, where costs can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. Mark, an employee at Spring Valley Hospital, heard about a seminar being hosted by Sher Fertility Institute at the hospital, and where an IVF treatment worth $11,000 was being donated to one couple in attendance. He and Ana attended the seminar and were fortunate to win the drawing.

During the seminar, Dr. Jeffrey Fisch of Sher Fertility Institute presented case studies of several patients, whom he referred to as “Faith” and “Hope”. After winning the drawing, Ana revealed that she had recently had the Japanese symbols for Faith and Hope tattooed on her wrists, representative of her quest to have children. She was surprised when Dr. Fisch used these names in his presentation, and saw it as a sign of good luck. Nevertheless, winning caught her off guard.

“I was in shock when they called my name,” said Ana. “It sounded like they said 'Nichols' so I wasn't sure if it was us. The funny thing is, Mark had been called away to handle a hospital issue just before the drawing, so he didn't realize we had won until he saw me on stage having my picture taken.”

The Nicolases underwent
