Yesterday, the Bay Area’s NBC News affiliate posted this YouTube video of Deborah Cohen dancing before double mastectomy surgery:

Right before going into surgery to have her breasts removed, Deborah Cohan, an Ob/Gyn and mom of two, boogied with her surgical and anesthesia teams at Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco.

Cohen and her medical team danced to Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied.”  She invited friends and family outside the OR to participate:

“I have visions of a healing video montage,” she wrote on her CaringBridge page. “Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”
