The Power Of Sisterhood: Melyssa Ford’s Friends Painted Her Toes While She Laid In The Hospital Bed

GETTY

Model Melyssa Ford is still recovering from her near brush with death back in July when she was involved in a horrific car crash.

On the way to a bridal shower, Ford’s Jeep rolled multiple times on an LA freeway after an 18-wheeler truck clipped her back tire, People reported at the time.

The 41-year-old was hospitalized with a skull fracture, brain bleeding, and severe cuts and bruises.

Ford recently took to IG where she shared a touching image of her friends, media personalities Aleesha Renee and Rocsi Diaz, painting her nails as she laid recovering in the hospital.

The former Blood, Sweat Heels star took a moment to reflect on her journey and thank fans and strangers for assisting in her healing the past couple of months.

“Having an experience that brought me as close to death as I have ever been, I’ve spent the months in recovery thinking A LOT. About the way I want to live the rest of the life God spared and what I have to offer, having been given this chance by Our Creator to discover a greater purpose. But it’s also made me think about LOVE,” she captioned her photo.

“The outpouring of LOVE I’ve felt the last few months, not just from friends and family but the ways total strangers have supported me in messages left in email and DMs and comments; sharing their own painful stories as a way to create a sense of solidarity with me… man, I don’t know what else to say other than my birthday wish is for YOUR peace, happiness, safety, health and abundance.”

As a Scorpio, we think about Life and Death a lot. Being the sign of Death and Rebirth, we contemplate our mortality frequently, which is why I think we also seem to constantly search for a deeper perspective, in the hopes of transforming to reach our higher Selves.

The pic I chose is an example of LOVE. My two Scorpio Sisters @iamalesharenee and @rocsidiaz in my hospital room trying to raise my spirits with some pampering. I ❤️ them and I ❤️ all of you.
