There are some people in this world who don't just make lemonade out of lemons, they do everything in their power to ensure as many people as possible get a big, satisfying glassful. Deborah Cohan is one of those women who you really want to be friends with -- a positive person who you know would remind you to look on the bright side of every situation. Minutes before this amazing woman received a double mastectomy, she did something incredible. She -- and her team of doctors and nurses -- got up and had a dance party you have to see to believe. And yes, they were proudly rocking their scrubs.
Deborah, who is a mom of two and an OB-GYN, relieved herself of stress and kept her spirits up by hosting a party in the operating room. The entire surgical team busted a move to Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied," and by the looks of it, Deborah was feeling pretty positive about her upcoming procedure. I don't know if I could be as upbeat if I were in her shoes, but she really serves as an inspiration, don't you agree? We can choose to look on the bright side or focus on all the bad that could occur, but at the end of the day, what happens is out of our hands, isn't it?
Deborah didn't ask her friends and family for much while she was preparing for her double mastectomy, but she did have one small request. On her CaringBridge page, she asked that her close ones play the Beyonce song at around the time she'd be boogying down in the ER and videotape themselves doing their own little interpretive dance to it. On her page she writes, "I have visions of a healing video montage. Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies." Just awesome!
Lots of people came through for Deborah. But if you want to see an example of a woman who is truly an inspirational soul, look no further:
