MICHAEL DOUGLAS IS KEEPING HIS KIDS IN THE LOOP WHILE FIGHTING CANCER
Michael Douglas is confident he will survive, but he didn’t whitewash his condition with his children – he’s been upfront since his throat cancer diagnosis. He didn’t want Dylan, 10, or Carys ,7, to hear frightening things at school or from strangers about daddy’s health. And he’s keeping the kids involved in his treatment – Michael brought them to the hospital to watch him get zapped with radiation. Now if he’s “tired,” they understand. He’s lost weight, but Michael remains upbeat – he says his tumor is responding well to treatment. He’ll have to plump up for his upcoming role as Liberace – due to film next year with Matt Damon as his lover.
