A San Francisco doctor brought a moment of levity to the day of her own breast cancer operation - by organizing a flash mob dance party just before her double mastectomy.
Deborah Cohan envisioned the moment as a way to gather the support of her family and friends.
"I want to dance with my community - flash mob style - in the hallway of my Mt. Zion hospital room," Cohan wrote to followers on her CaringBridge page October 28. "Maybe even get some other patients out of their beds to dance with us."
