Cancer Patient Dances Before Operation

This is hardly what you'd expect to see in an operating room moments before a serious operation.

But the patient Deborah Cohan felt what she needed most before going under the knife was a good old dance party!

Deborah, her family  and her team of doctors get down to Beyonce's song 'Get Me Bodied' in a 6 minute truly inspirational video worthy of its viral video status.

Deborah,  a doctor herself, underwent a double mastectomy at Mount Zion Hosptial in San Franciso Tuesday.

She is doing great and was actually more nervous about how the dance party would turn out than the operation itself.
