About to Undergo a Double Mastectomy, This Woman Dances Her Way into the Operating Room
You’re about to undergo surgery — a double mastectomy, no less — to fight breast cancer. You have no idea how the surgery is going to go. What do you do in the moments before they put you under? If you’re Deborah Cohen, you just dance.
Cohen, a OB/GYN, probably has a little pull in the O.R., but it’s kind of awesome to see this woman dance her way into surgery. Sure, she still has to be scared, but she’s still in control of her own body, even when it’s fighting against her like it does with cancer.
Her surgery was on Tuesday. She was discharged yesterday, according to CNN. No word on how things went, but regardless, it sounds like Deborah has the right attitude to survive. Our prayers go to her.
Watch her dance her way toward recovery:
