She wasn’t supposed to live…at least that’s what everyone though after Melissa Dohme was attacked by her ex-boyfriend. He stabbed her 32 times.
Melissa told TODAY, “Everyone thought I was going to die, but Cameron had this feeling that he was going to see me again.” After she recovered, Melissa and her mom went to visit the paramedics who helped save her life. She and Cameron hit it off immediately.
They got along so well in fact, that Melissa told her mom, “That right there is my next boyfriend. That’s the kind of man that I want to be with.” Turns out he was her last boyfriend as well. Well, here’s hoping that’s the case anyway!
Many of the people involved in Melissa’s recovery have stayed close with her. In fact, the wedding was attended by many police officers, EMTs, firemen and doctors. And according to TODAY, one of her bridesmaids and close friend was the police officer who found her. Talk about making something good from a tragedy!
