Dancing Granny Becomes Facebook Sensation
FAIRBORN -- A Fairborn woman in hospice is becoming a social media sensation.
It all started when her family surprised her with a group of cloggers last Saturday.
"I loved it from the first time I saw it, first time I saw it," Pat Coffey-Rose, hospice patient, and loves clogging, "I've caught myself just sitting in my room sometimes and my feet moving."
Coffey-Rose made a wish and it came true.
"I knew nothing, nothing whatsoever, they blinded me (laughs)," she said.
She's been in hospice since May.
"My mom is dying, that's just the way it is," said Brenda White, Coffey-Rose's daughter, "It's something that you have to accept."
Coffey-Rose proudly wears her oxygen tube, something she need to survive.
She's in the end stage of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).
But she didn't let that stop her from doing what she loves last Saturday, when she was surprised by a group of cloggers.
"I just wanted to be up there, because I love to clog," she said.
"The twinkle was back in her eye and you don't get that a lot," said White.
Her granddaughter, Mackenzie, captured video of her dancing and daughter Brenda posted the video on Facebook, so other family member out of state could watch her get her groove back.
"I told her it took this long to be a movie star (laughs)," said Donna Benjamin, Coffey-Rose's niece.
Now a Facebook sensation after hundreds of people shared the video.
"She got up there and she did it and she did excellent," said White.
But today, she's just thankful to be able to get up and dance.
"It felt great, just wonderful, just like 30 years ago," she said, "Just like back then when I was young, and when I could really get it on."
We also asked if she had any other wishes, she told us she couldn't think of any off the top of her head.
