Patient Dances Into Double Mastectomy, is an Inspiration to Us All

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Deborah Cohan should serve as an inspiration to us all.

The mother of two underwent a double mastectomy Tuesday at San Francisco's Mt. Zion Hospital and didn't merely put on a brave face... she put on her dancing shoes!

Yes, Cohan and her medical team spent six minutes moving and shaking to Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied (Extended Remix)" prior to the procedure, an event she teased on her Caring Bridge blog before going under the knife.

"I will be dancing in my little hospital gown and bouffant cap in the Mt. Zion operating room with the surgical and anesthesia teams," Cohan wrote, explaining further:

"My fantasy is for you to play the song and dance wherever you happen to be (in the kitchen, the carwash, subway platform, classroom, Labor and Delivery unit, wherever!).

"I have visions of a healing video montage. Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?"

They sure seem to be, as the video has been shared 52 million times since a certain person put it on Facebook: Beyonce herself!

"Deborah, you are awesome!" the superstar wrote along with the post, a sentiment pretty much everyone on the planet can echo.

And, according to Cohan's Caring Bridge page, all this positive energy has paid off:

"Deb's surgery was very successful," it reads. "No visible lymph node involvement. She's in good spirits. Already did some walking. Amazing."

All of you with negative comments need to get a life... this is a real woman, who went through a MAJOR surgery. (and to those of you who are saying it's fake: do some research before you comment. She is a doctor and this is her hospital. Why would someone fake a masectomy?!)
