This Woman’s Dance Party Before Her Double Mastectomy Will Make You Happycry

A hospital gown has never looked so good.

1. Just moments before Deborah Cohan had both of her breasts removed, the OB-GYN and mother of two and her surgical team turned up Beyoncé’s “Get Me Bodied” and threw a dance party in the operating room of Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco.

2. On her CaringBridge page, Deborah asked that friends and family record themselves dancing to Beyoncé so that she would have awesome videos to watch during her recovery. “I have visions of a healing video montage,” she said. And they answered the call…

3. Here are Deb’s colleagues at San Francisco General Hospital, who gathered in the hallway to bust a move in Deb’s honor.

4. Here are her friends John and Margaret, who joined in from Atlanta.

5. Here are Nina, Tatiana, Felipe, and one very calm puppy, who got in on the action from Connecticut.

6. And here’s Deb’s aunt Zella dancing in solidarity in her living room.

7. According to Deb’s CaringBridge page, “Deb’s surgery was very successful. No visible lymph node involvement. She’s in good spirits. Already did some walking. Amazing.”
