Michael Douglas has beat cancer

Michael Douglas has wonderful news to reveal tomorrow on Today.

On Tuesday, the Wall Street actor will reveal the amazing news that the tumor is his throat has gone.

“The odds are, with the tumor gone and what I know about this particular type of cancer, that I’ve got it beat,” Douglas said during an interview with Today show anchor Matt Lauer, that will air Tuesday.

This will be Douglas’s first television interview since undergoing treatment for advanced throat cancer.

Douglas, 66, was diagnosed with stage-four throat cancer in August 2010 and completed his chemotherapy in October.

“It’s put a timeline on my life,” Douglas said in the new interview.

“I’m 66 now. You know, I’m fortunate I’ve got a mother who’s 88. She’ll kill me. She may be 87. My father’s 94. So, you know, I feel good about those genes. But it’s definitely a third act. And so you’re a little more conscious of your time in how you choose to spend it.”

We are happy to hear this news.  His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, 41, and their two children Dylan, 10, and Carys, 7, must be thrilled beyond words!
