Just in case we needed more proof that Beyonce makes everything just that little bit better, this video of a breast cancer patient dancing up a storm right before surgery certainly does the trick.

Deborah Cohan, an Ob/Gyn and mum of two, decided she wanted her final pre double mastectomy moments moments to be filled with joy, so she organised a killer dance party with her medical team.

The inspiring video, which is actually 6 minutes long, shows Cohan busting some serious moves to Beyonce's hit 'Get Me Bodied' with a huge smile on her face.

And if going viral wasn't enough, Beyonce herself has posted a link to the video on her Facebook page with the caption 'Deborah, you are awesome!'

Cohan has requested that friends and family make similar videos of themselves dancing to Queen B so she can watch them during her recovery.

"I have visions of a healing video montage," she wrote.

"Nothing brings me greater joy than catalysing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?"

You can check out videos of Cohan's fans recreating the dance magic or leave messages of support for her on this CaringBridge page.

Is it ever OK to complain about other people's kids?

Yes, children should be seen and not heard.

No, let kids be kids and let off steam.

It depends on the situation.
