Melissa Dohme is a 21 year old survivor of an unimaginable domestic violence attack. Her exboyfriend attacked and stabbed Melissa 32 times in the face, head, neck and arms in January 2012. She flatlined 4 times, had broken bones, suffered a stroke in her cerebellum, received 12 units of blood, and due to the trauma, now has facial paralysis.
Her determination to help others through her advocacy is that of a true survivor. She is surviving and thriving in college and we want to ensure that she doesn’t accumulate an overwhelming amount of medical bills.
Melissa now is working with Massachusetts General Hospital’s Facial Nerve Center to have multiple procedures and surgeries to improve the symmetry and function of her facial nerve.
