Obviously, its an issue that hits close to home.
Michael Douglas has signed on to participate on the Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon, airing next week. Following his own diagnosis of a tumor in his throat, Michael will send out a special message out to supporters via satellite in New York. (His doctors have discouraged travel as he undergoes cancer treatment.)
Hopefully, the experience will make him stronger and fill him with a sense of pride that so many people feel so strongly in finding a cure!
