n 2012, Melissa Dohme was 20 years old when she was attacked by her ex-boyfriend in Clearwater, FL. He stabbed her 32 times and left her for dead. Miraculously, she survived.

Firefighter-paramedic, Cameron Hill, was one of the first responders at the scene of the crime. One day, in the midst of her long road to recovery, Melissa attended a church event and finally met Cameron.

Melissa and Cameron instantly connected, and soon they were in love.

Melissa underwent several surgeries to reconstruct her face and body. Wait until you see her transformation! She continues to document her journey via Facebook, constantly showing her appreciate for her strong support network of family, friends, her loyal pit bull, and now the love of her life. All the while, Melissa has become an advocate against domestic violence; she’s graduated from college; she’s become a nurse; and her story of survival has inspired millions.

A judge sentenced Robert Lee Burton Jr. to life in prison. After the sentencing, Melissa proved her strength yet again. “I offer forgiveness and I forgive him,” she said. “Forgiveness is a sign of letting go and when you forgive someone that hurts you, you take away their power.”

Three years after her brush with death, Melissa threw the ‪ceremonial first pitch at a Tampa Bay Rays game. Little did she know, Cameron had a huge surprise for her.
