Are you with me people?

Imagine for a second that you have breast cancer. Imagine that you have just been prepped for surgery to have both your breasts removed.

That was the fate of a woman named Deborah Cohan. But instead of breaking down, she threw a party.

A video of the Ob/Gyn and mom of two dancing with staff at San Francisco's Mt. Zion Hospital has gone viral. In the clip via the Huffington Post, Cohan busts some fine moves to Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied.”

On her CaringBridge page, Cohan's many friends and family honoured her request by filming their own dance videos for her to watch during her convalescence.  

“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?”

Surrounding herself with positivity and light will surely help the recovery process and keep a smile on her face during a gruelling time. See how this woman faced breast cancer with grace and bravery.

What a terrific and totally inspiring idea, don't you think? Sending healing vibes your way, Deborah!
