Breast Cancer Patient Dances Before Mastectomy Surgery To Remove Both Sides

Breast Cancer Patient Dances Before Double Mastectomy Surgery

Video source:

In a six-minute video that proves Beyonce makes everything better, a breast cancer patient dances in the operating room with her doctors and nurses before going under anesthesia. The video, which is quickly going viral, was uploaded on Tuesday, the day Deborah Cohan had her bilateral mastectomy at UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion in San Francisco, according to her Caring Bridge page. (Cohan is also an OB-GYN at the hospital, so she had some pull when talking the doctors and nurses into being her backup dancers.)

Cohan’s idea was to have a sort of worldwide, virtual dance party with her family and friends in the minutes before her surgery on Tuesday. “My fantasy is for you to play the song … and dance wherever you happen to be … ideally at 7:30am but really anytime Tuesday,” she wrote . “Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”
