Pam and Jerry enjoyed 17 years of wedded bliss. They had four children and lived a life of travel and adventure.

They were an inseparable family, and Pam was considered a “supermom.”

But everything changed in April of 1994, the day after Pam’s mother’s funeral, when Pam suddenly collapsed on the floor.

The 38-year-old wife and mother had gone into cardiac arrest after her potassium levels dropped, and she slipped into a weeks-long coma.

Pam survived the terrifying ordeal, but the aftermath left her a completely different person — with no memory of her wedding day, her husband, her four kids, or the life they shared together for so many years.

But that was just the tip of the iceberg.

Two years later, The Oprah Winfrey Show got an intimate and powerful glimpse into Pam’s new life.
