She also added, “Given the emotional and often moving testimony you’ll hear tonight, our experts won’t be providing any valuations. But the most humble items will reveal powerful stories.”

The 58-year-old said that the episode is a tribute to all everyone who has worked in the nursing profession. “Nurses are there as we enter the world until we leave it, they care for us when we’re at our most vulnerable and when we’re most in need,” she explained.
