(WMBF) – An inspirational YouTube video of a woman and her surgical team dancing before a breast cancer operation is going viral.

"Deb's OR Flash Mob" had over 326,001 views as of Thursday morning, and shows a woman "flash mob" dancing, smiling and laughing with a group of surgeons and anesthesiologists before she underwent double mastectomy surgery, according to a blog post on "Caring Bridge."

In the blog post, Deborah Cohan requested that friends and family record themselves also busting a move to Beyonce's hit "Get Me Bodied."

"Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies," Cohan wrote. Watch the six-minute dance party video here:
