Jane Seymour also had a close brush with death, when she was 36, she had a severe case of the flu and was given an injection of penicillin and suffered an allergic reaction which led to a near-death experience.

Follow both of their harrowing tales below.


Brooke said: "I think it's impossible to go through something like that and not be changed. You kind of take an inventory of who is in your life and what you're doing with your life, where you're spending your time. You place more importance on relationships, and you don't take other things so seriously."

"Once you've faced a life-or-death moment, you don't sweat the small stuff," she adds.

"You learn to be flexible. You learn to laugh more."

More details on how it changed her life.


NDEs of the Rich and Famous quotes Jane:

"I literally left my body. I had this feeling that I could see myself on the bed, with people grouped around me. I remember them all trying to resuscitate me. I was above them, in the corner of the room looking down. I saw people putting needles in me, trying to hold me down, doing things. I remember my whole life flashing before my eyes, but I wasn't thinking about winning Emmys or anything like that. The only thing I cared about was that I wanted to live because I did not want anyone else looking after my children.

I was floating up there thinking, "No, I don't want to die. I'm not ready to leave my kids."

And that was when I said to God, "If you're there, God, if you really exist and I survive, I will never take your name in vain again." Although I believe that I "died" for about thirty seconds, I can remember pleading with the doctor to bring me back. I was determined I wasn't going to die."

Then Jane suddenly found herself back in her body she said during an interview for a TV program on near-death experiences.
