MAYWOOD, N.J. — Karen Mellone Dimoski, 32 of Maywood, will be featured on TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress" on Saturday, April 29 at 8 p.m.
The couple on Friday won a renovation contest and will be redoing their 1950s bathroom and finishing up other projects around the house.
Dimoski, a nurse at HackensackHUMC's Cancer Center, was vacationing at the Jersey Shore with her boyfriend (now husband) Jonce Dimoski in July 2015 when he went into cardiac arrest in the middle of the night — the weekend he was planning on proposing.
The Hackensack High School graduates began dating after being paired up at a friend's wedding a few years prior and were settling into their new Maywood home together before the incident happened.
Mellone-Dimoski began administering CPR and called 911. Her boyfriend spent the following week in the ICU... and eventually proposed. The two married in October 2016 — exactly two years after moving in together.
This past January, Dimoski's heart acted up again. His defibrillator shocked him 18 times to try to correct it.
Doctor's were able to target the problem, and Dimoski is scheduled to have an ablation done at Mount Sinai in New York City.
