Michael Douglas Beats Cancer

Great news to report--it looks like Michael Douglas has beaten cancer.

Michael confirmed the great news to Matt Lauer on The Today Show in an interview scheduled to air tomorrow, reports Gossip Cop.

During the interview Michael talks about the “wild six-month ride” since his diagnosis, the difficulties of treatment, the role played by his family and friends, his future in movies and more.

He told Matt, “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.”

“I feel good, relieved. The tumor is gone,” he says. “But, you know, I have to check out on a monthly basis now to maintain.”

Although he's always appreciated his wife Catherine Zeta Jones and their children, he admits that now more than ever he's extremely grateful to have them in his life.

“And we’ve had a big celebration these last couple of days when I found out the tumor’s gone,” adds Douglas.

Make sure to watch The Today Show on Tuesday for the full interview.
