Michael Douglas is Cancer Free
After a “wild six-month ride,” Michael Douglas has beaten his stage four cancer.
The 66-year-old actor told Matt Lauer in a Today interview airing Tuesday (January 11) that while he’ll continue to keep tabs on his recovery, “the tumor is gone.”
Michael shared that he lost just over 30 pounds with his radiation and chemotherapy treatment and has gained about 12 back so far.
“All of a sudden the affection from my family, from my friends, and from my fans hit me at a much deeper level than I would have ever imagined before,” Michael said. “And it gave me a really new appreciation of just how valuable, how precious good friends are and family.”
Michael first announced that he would undergo treatment on a throat tumor back in August.
