SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A courageous local woman has quickly gained online fame after leading a flashmob scene in her operating room moments before undergoing a double mastectomy.

Dr. Deborah Cohan, an obstetrician and gynecologist, at University of California San Francisco organized the the six-minute dance party set to Beyonce’s hit single “Get Me Bodied.”

In addition to her medial team, the mother of two encouraged others to dance to her recovery using the website Caring Bridge.

“I have visions of nurses, patients, my community members (and maybe a few surgery residents) transforming the solemn space of a hospital into a vibrant healing ward,” she wrote on the website.

She likely didn’t envision the video receiving more that half a million views in its first 48 hours online. All of those clicks have led to numerous online comments about how her courageous cancer battle has given strength to others.

Cohan was reportedly discharged from the hospital Wednesday.
