Double Mastectomy Dance Party


Today there’s a flash mob for everything; political protests, art, proposals.. the list goes on. The latest flash mob on our radar is more inspiring than most.

Just before a double mastectomy surgery, OBGYN Deborah Cohan danced in the Mt.Zion Hospital operating room.

The song she chose was Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied.” In six minutes Cohan demonstrates her dance moves and her resilience.

“My fantasy is for you to play the song and dance wherever you happen to be,” she wrote on her CaringBridge website.

The video has over four million YouTube views.

It resonated with viewers who left comments on Cohen’s website.

“Deborah, your dance video moved me beyond words. Thank you so much for sharing your positivity with the world. All the best for a speedy recovery.”

“You are completely awesome. I’ve been there, double mass in 09. Why wasn’t there a dance party??? What an inspiration. God bless you!

Some of her co-workers posted their flash mob video on YouTube.

We wish you speedy recovery, Dr. Cohan! And we hope you post another awesome dance video when you’re up to it.
