Actor Michael Douglas says he is upbeat in spite of a diagnosis of advanced throat cancer, which he discussed Tuesday on The Late Show With David Letterman.Douglas, 65, told Letterman that his cancer is Stage IV but hasn’t spread beyond the head and neck area. The cancer developed on the back of the tongue, said his spokesman, Allen Burry.
That’s the winning spirit against cancer Michael. I believe many kill themselves with the disease. As soon as they hear the C word their spirits are dashed and immune system breaks down and naturally the disease takes over. Research has shown that those who remain really committed to being positive and taking life as it comes, fare a lot better. So, Michael, we love you and keep on doing what you doing and you’ll be doing just fine.
