SAN FRANCISCO – It can be pretty scary heading into the operating room for surgery, but one patient considered it a time to celebrate. Now video of the celebration is spreading across the Internet at a rapid pace.

Deborah Cohan, who is an OB/GYN in San Francisco, underwent a double mastectomy this week.

Before the procedure, she held a dance party with the medical team Beyoncé's "Get Me Bodied".

Cohan said nothing brings her greater joy than getting others to dance.

She also requested that friends and family make videos of themselves dancing too to lift her spirits during her recovery.

A video of the dance was posted to YouTube on Tuesday and within three days already had more than 3.5 million views. It probably didn't hurt Beyonce put it on her Facebook page either.
