In January 2012, Melissa Dohme was lifted into an ambulance after being stabbed 32 times by [then-boyfriend] Robert Lee Burton Jr. in her Clearwater, Florida, home.
One of the first responders, a man named Cameron Hill, resuscitated her after she flat-lined several times.
Two months later, Dohme and Hill reconnected at a luncheon -- and by the following December, they were dating.
The couple became engaged at a baseball game in May of 2015...
And on March 4, 2017, the two were married.
“It was a full circle moment,” Melissa told People magazine. “I spent the worst and the best day of my life with Cameron.”
She has a single message to other women who are recovering from domestic abuse:
"Life and love after abuse is possible."
