Michael Douglas On Cancer Battle: "The Tumor Is Gone"

Posted on Mon Jan 10, 2011 02:35 PM PDT


So happy for Michael Douglas!

The Wall Street 2 actor sits down with Matt Lauer on the Today Show tomorrow and opens up about his battle with cancer. Douglas explains:

    "I feel good, relieved. The tumor is gone. I think the odds are with the tumor gone and what I know about this particular type of cancer that I've got it beat. I have to check out on a monthly basis now to maintain. I guess there's not a total euphoria. I'll probably take a couple of months of getting checked out. But it's been a wild six-month ride."

Congrats! Talk about good news, right? Douglas also says he lost "about 32 pounds" during the whole ordeal, and reveals what life is like being a cancer survivor:

    "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. And it gave me a really new appreciation of just how valuable, how precious good friends are and family. And it's not that I disregarded them before but there's a much deeper feeling."

Douglas is currently married to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. The couple has two children together, Carys and Dillon. Douglas also has another child, Cameron, from a previous marriage.
