'I want to go to a Bob Seger concert' - 2 years later, a wish granted
The Palm Beach Times, ABC, the Guardian, UPI, the Examiner, even "Perth Now" covered the amazing story of Evie Branan.
The 79 year-old woman woke from a five-year semi-coma in the spring 2011 and said "I want to go to a Bob Seger concert."
Two years later, she got her wish. Here she is dancing at last night's concert with a little help:
From MLive's Sarah Schuch:
At 79 years old, Evie Branan still cheered, threw her hands in the air, shook her booty and rocked out the Bob Seger concert Thursday night.
She met Seger and his family, chatted with crew and band members and received VIP treatment at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Complete strangers recognized her after hearing her name or seeing her pushed through the halls of The Palace.

"I'm full of pep. I like doing things. I love dancing," she said:
Branan lives at the Willowbrook Manor assisted living facility in Flint Township
