Getting a brain tumour surgically removed can be a gruelling experience and laughing through it seems unlikely. But there have been incidents when patients surprised people by playing music while undergoing surgery.

Now the video of a teacher and amateur comedian singing and telling jokes during a nine hour surgery is doing the rounds. The woman was kept alive during the procedure and so she decided to keep telling jokes when the staff were amused with a comment.

 

Sarah-May Philo is also a trained opera singer and made up songs about the staff around her when a speech therapist asked her to try singing. The experience came as an ice breaker for Sarah as she felt she was in a café with friends.
