Stage 4 cancer

5 Sep, 2010

Douglas announces on Letterman that he has stage four cancer.  He was diagnosed three weeks prior and completed his first round of treatment.

It had been bothering me for a while. In the early summer, I had a really sore throat … and I actually went through a litany of doctors and tests and they didn’t find anything…The percentages are very good. I would hate to say, but right now, it looks like it should be 80 percent, and with certain hospitals and everything, it does improve.
