A Little Beyonce Always Makes a Double Mastectomy Better

Undergoing a double mastectomy can be a scary thing. Thankfully for one woman, she had the upbeat, twerk-friendly sounds of Beyonce to liven the situation.

Before going under the knife to have both of her breasts removed, cancer patient Deborah Cohan organized a dance party with her medical team on the floor of the OR at Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco.

The Ob/Gyn and mom of two asked friends and family to organize their own dance party flash mobs in the hallway of the hospital with the plan to watch the videos while in recovery.

“I have visions of nurses, patients, my community members (and maybe a few surgery residents) transforming the solemn space of a hospital into a vibrant healing ward,” she wrote on hr CaringBridge website. “Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”

The 6-minute inspiring video was posted on YouTube.

Wishing you a speedy recovery Deborah!
