How Did Deborah Cohan Prep for a Double Mastectomy? With an Epic Dance Party!

What better way to prep for your double mastectomy than a dance party in the operating room

I'm not going to say this lightly. Deborah Cohan has figured out the meaning of life: to celebrate it!

Deborah is an OBGYN, but her recent breast cancer diagnosis turned her into a patient and she made the hard decision to have a double mastectomy. When she asked the surgical team for something out-of-the-ordinary in the OR, they -- being completely awesome -- obliged.

This video of Deborah and her OR team working it out to Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied" is one of the most life-affirming, lemonade-out-of-lemons moments I've witnessed in a long time. In fact, I jumped up and started dancing with them.

(Hey, Deb! Hope you're feeling better soon!)
