Michael Douglas is fighting throat cancer with the help of his friends, family and even some strangers. The actor, who announced he was battling the disease in August, says he has been overwhelmed by the amount of love from others who have already been through it.
"My family has been very supportive. There's not a lot that anybody can do. You've just got to kind of do the program," Douglas, 65, said at a press conference for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. "But it's the world you (learn to) understand about cancer. You get to know cancer survivors, and the kind of support and outpouring I've been getting has just been amazing."
Douglas is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for the stage four cancer, but he remains positive, maintaining that he has "a lot of things to be grateful for."
"I'm in the middle of my program, and it's going along fine," the actor said. "I'm very optimistic and hopeful right now."
The Wall Street sequel hits theaters Friday, and Douglas says he's "looking for a great opening night."
