Ex-Boyfriend Stabs Her 32 Times. 3 Years Later, The EMT Who Found Her Dying Hands Her A Note




As Melissa began piecing her life back together, she became a huge advocate in her community against domestic violence. Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence is just one of her many causes, and victims of domestic violence look to her for hope and strength. 

In 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.

This is Melissa Dohme. When she was 20 years old, her ex-boyfriend tried to kill her. He stabbed her 32 times, all over her body, and left her for dead.

But Melissa fought for her life, and miraculously, she survived. She suffered critical stab wounds to her face and neck, leaving her partially paralyzed in her face. The attempted killer was sentenced to life in prison, and Melissa began documenting her road to recovery on Facebook.

Melissa underwent several surgeries to repair the damage that had been done, like scar excision and revision surgery. She had deep cuts, missing teeth, an eye that didn't shut -- but she never gave up hope.

...And by 2013, Melissa and Cameron were totally in love! Melissa says she's not bitter about the attack because it led to her meeting the love of her life.

  1. Has a guy ever given you mixed signals?

    One minute he’s crazy about you and the next minute you have no clue if he ever wants to see you again?

    And it’s especially hard when there’s something special between you and you have no idea what went wrong.

    I assure you it’s nothing that you did.

    In fact, he may even care about you a great deal and still not be able to stop himself from acting this way.

    But why does this happen?

    There’s one BIG reason why men do this...

    And I discovered this eye opening video that will shed some light on this bizarre behaviour.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    It all comes down to a missing “secret ingredient” that not one in a thousand women knows about...

    And it’s the biggest factor that determines whether a man just “likes” you...

    ...or if he sees you as “The One.”

    You see, this “secret ingredient” is so important to a man that no matter how attracted to you he is, or how strong your chemistry is...

    If it’s missing, he’ll never be able to truly give his heart to you...

    And he will always have an unshakeable urge to seek out a woman who has this one “secret ingredient.”

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> The difference between “like” and “love” (most women miss this)

    On the other hand, when you know this powerful “secret ingredient”...

    ...you won’t believe how effortless, passionate and bulletproof your relationship can be.

    Trust me, this is going to blow you away.

    Discover it here: ==> Men fall in love with women who have this “secret ingredient”

    Thanks again.
