Michael Douglas is cancer free! Such a big fight for him and his family, a battle won by the actor himself. Be sure to check out pictures and videos below.

Actor Michael Douglas was diagnosed with stage four throat cancer last summer, and now? He feels he has beaten this debilitating disease. In an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show, he said this with his recovery:

“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.”

With that being said, Douglas will still maintain his health with getting regular check ups, commenting that it’s been “a wild six-month ride” during the treatment process. Thus, you could about imagine the emotional toll it has had on his family and friends. Michael adds, “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 disregard them before but there’s a much deeper feeling. I’ve talked to other cancer survivors about this … that you just really, really appreciate what’s important in life.”

Douglas’ cancer has definitely changed the way he views life. During his strenuous treatment, not only did he lose a sickening 32 pounds, he is now looking happier and healthier than before packing on a reported 12 pounds! Feeling as if his life was put on a “timeline” he can be thankful for having such supportive parents, who are still healthily living their lives, his very loving family, and friends.
