Michael Douglas Keeps On Fighting

And we don't imagine that he's going to stop anytime soon.

As you already know, Michael Douglas has been battling throat cancer for some time now. Right now, just to look at him, you can see he's lost an enormous amount of weight from the chemo. In fact, we're told that thus far, he has lost almost 40 pounds!

But when we saw the pictures of Michael's vacation in Orlando, FL over Thanksgiving, we thought things had taken a turn for the better. According to sources, we were wrong.

The photos, though we kind of already figured, were staged for the cameras. Behind-the-scenes, attendants at the Walt Disney World Resort where Michael and his family were visiting noticed how frail he had really become. One source explained:

"He looked frail and sick… he most definitely looked like he needed the wheelchair."

Aw. Poor guy. On the bright side, he was well enough to endure the plane ride down and back again. That onto itself is an accomplishment for someone going through such aggressive treatment.

The important thing is, he isn't giving up. In fact, we even saw pictures of him walking his dog this week, so at least he is getting out and about.

We have faith that he is going to pull through this. He's a tough guy with a great family supporting him and a lot to live for.

That, and modern medicine, should get him back to rare form in no time!

    I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone, but I wish he would take responsibility for his illness and talk about smoking. I don't know if he still smokes, but his wife does. Are we supposed to feel sorry for her when she gets cancer too?

  2. dodo says – reply to this

    I agree with rosebud99. What is he fighting/battling? All he is doing is continuing to get treatment or accepting the alternative. As far as I am concerned he has led a highly irresponsible life smoking and drinking while knowing full well the consequences. To top that off, he has fathered children at a late age while aware that based on his lifestyle they would become orphans before growing up. I feel sorry for his children but not for him.

    dodo, I don't think he's done such a hot job as a young father either, given all the trouble his son has been in. Michael and Catherine should do the right thing and advocate for not smoking.

    Why are apricot seeds banned in the U.S.A?
    But wait, if apricot seeds are banned, then are apricots banned? … The American Cancer Society and the FDA have a list of "Unproven Methods" for cancer. …

    Re: dodo – "Feel sorry for his kids"? His kids will live a life 99% of kids could only dream of with or without their fathers!

    Ok, he smoked, but it's not a reason to judge him. Cancer is a terrible thing. He has a loving wife and kids and we should only wish him the best. Sure, smoking is bad…but please let him get over this, let him spend some quality time with his family first. Then maybe he can advocate not smoking. People, stop blaming others when something bad happens in their life. His ex wife is a bitch who is still after him for money. She has never let go and she is still harassing him for money in spite of his illness. She is the one who should be judged. This family has a home in Quebec, where I live. They are wonderful people. I wish them the very best.

    It's obvious you know nothing about cancer treatment. It takes a year to recover from the effects of chemo, etc. The fatigue can last for months. Get your facts straight, numbnuts.

    I hope he croaks. He doesn't "deserve" to live any more than many non-celebrity people who have horrifying diseases and hardship. and he's not "battling," his medical team is battling. Both he and his wife are exposing their kids to smoke, either second hand or third or both. His cancer is probably linked to HPV (cunnilingus) or smoking or both. Why root for the guy? I'd rather cheer on a 7 year old with leukemia.

    What's really surprised me about all this is what a good marriage he and CZJ seem to have. It's been 10 years, right? And from what I've read she loves the hell out of him, and he her. Very very nice to see.

    I too know what it is like to have more determination than strength Mr. Douglas!
    Keep it up - the strength will follow!

    I just hate the words "fighting" "battling" "beating" when dealing with cancer. We have to live with it, go through the treatments, endure all kinds of indignities, but that is not a battle or a fight. But then people enjoy looking aggressie even when facing a terrible illness. I hope Michael gets better which is not impossible, there are more cancer survivors than cancer victims. Good luck Michael, can't wait to see him as Liberace, he will be wonderful as always.

    His son Cameron is hoping he's in the Will!

    I feel very sorry for those 2 kids, and Cameron too. Michael is a womanizing, drinking, drugging, smoking pig who had the nerve to put down gorgeous Angelina Jolie "holding orphans". Remember ? Well, karma got him now his poor kids very well could be orphans. And his youngest son is very slow and cannot even go to a normal school. Those kids deserve a better mother too, one who smokes when pregnant is a total dunce.
