She was planning to throw out the first pitch at Monday’s Tampa Bay Rays’ game, but instead of throwing a ball, she got a rock, and the man of her dreams, after living a nightmare.
In January 2012, Cameron Hill responded to a 911 call that would change his life. He found a woman stabbed 32 times by a former boyfriend, The Tampa Bay Times reported.
Hill didn’t know the woman’s name as she flew off in a medical helicopter.
Melissa Dohme would spend three weeks in the hospital, flat-lining four times and suffering nerve damage. Eventually she walked out of rehab on her own and went back to school to become a nurse.
A few months later, they reconnected when she spoke at a church. Eventually, they became a couple, spending every day together, The Tampa Bay Times reported..
Dohme told the Tampa Bay Times, “When I look back on that night, I can’t think of it as all bad anymore because i met Cameron. He’s the one I’ve been waiting for. My fairy tale.”
Monday night, as Dohme was getting ready to throw out the pitch, a man ran out to give her the ball, but it wasn’t the normal MLB baseball, it had a special message. As WFLA reported, written in red was “Will You Marry Me?”
