Fan meets Bob Seger after awakening from semi-coma

- Associated Press - Friday, April 12, 2013

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – The first words of a 79-year-old Michigan woman as she emerged from a five-year semi-coma were, “I want to go to a Bob Seger concert.” And now her wish has come true.

The Flint Journal reports that Evie Branan cheered, threw her hands in the air and danced during Mr. Seger’s concert Thursday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills. She also met Mr. Seger and his family, talked with crew and band members and received VIP treatment.

Ms. Branan is from Flint Township. She called the night “the happiest I’ve been in a long time.”

After suffering a stroke that left Ms. Branan unable to speak, move or eat on her own, she became a resident of Willowbrook Manor’s long-term care unit. She awoke from the semi-coma on May 7, 2011.
