CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The last year of Melanie Mahadeo's life has been a nightmare. A breast cancer diagnosis last June was only the beginning. 4 days later, her husband left for Iraq for a one year deployment.
The hits kept coming. Her insurance company dropped her. Her hair fell out. She started chemotherapy and radiation treatments to battle her cancer.
Every day of her ordeal was spent without her husband by her side.
But 2:35 p.m. on Thursday, 311 days after he husband left, a small white plane brought him, and his detachment, home.
Melanie waited behind a metal gate for the military marching from the plane to the gate. It seemed like forever until a sergeant screamed, "Detachment, dismissed!"
Micah started running. With her son in her arms, Melanie started running. The two met in the middle for a hug that seemed to melt away the heartache of the last year. Micah says he can't wait to put civilian clothes on. Melanie says she can't wait to feel her normal life again.
