While cancer is nothing to celebrate, Deborah Cohen is still choosing to dance.
The San Francisco mother of two decided to hold a dance party in the operating room of Mt. Zion Hospital right before she went into surgery for a double mastectomy.
Watch Cohen and her medical team bust a few moves to Beyonce's Get Me Bodied below:
According to a CaringBridge post from yesterday evening, "Deb's surgery was very successful. No visible lymph node involvement. She’s in good spirits. Already did some walking. Amazing."
On her CaringBridge.org page, Cohen encouraged family and friends to also dance along — and film themselves, so she could watch the joyful videos during recovery.

"I have visions of a healing video montage," she wrote. "Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me, people?"
And they were with her.
